Note that the most frequent use is to declare an attribute as 'NOT NULL'. There's still reason for hope...

Alon Halevy at the SIGMOD Blog: sharing experiences from A Decade at Google. Two recommendations: never stop coding,  and never stop looking at the data (which must be quite a task if you're at Google!)

Perhaps time to go back to logic and formal specification for code?

This is a ridiculous way to put (distort) the problem. There's nothing wrong with rewarding/encouraging good outcomes.
"It makes business-oriented reformy types crazy that the way I do my job doesn't make any difference to my pay. I understand the terror for them there, but that Not Making A Difference is actually the point of how we pay public servants.

It doesn't matter it's a big fire or a small fire, a rich person's house or a poor person's house -- the fire department still does their job. It doesn't matter whether I have a classroom full of bright students or slow students, rich students or poor students, ambitious students or lazy students -- I will still show up and do my job the best I know how. I should never, ever, ever have to look at a class roster or a set of test results or a practice quiz and think, "Dammit, these kids are going to keep me from making my house payment next month." I should never view my students as an obstacle to feeding my family."
