Values are values whether or not they are in a db. It is situation dependant and probably not (happily) manageable in a large scale application. Saying things are "impossible" with such a heavy hand is a bit over the top. If my cookies have a date that is valid, then I can easily keep that bit of nasty logic in the code. I wouldn't do that personally, but it is doable. Take it easy :)
