Possibly. Bernard was making the point that, no it's not, it's part of
why arrays are faster than databases. But the other side of that coin
is that arrays don't have machinery (null checking, referential integrity,
etc.) and therefore you have to add all the validation yourself. So
the lack of the database validation things won't slow you down until
you get to the point where you do the things that are built into the
database machinery anyway, and probably in a faster implementation
than anything you could do by scripting.
