Well, actually I didn’t get well what you mean.

If you ask to make _fk_constraint table itself be closer to REFERENTIAL_CONSTRAINTS
from ANSI schema definition.. The best effort I am able to do now - rename it to
See part 11 of 2003 standard: 6.3.3 REFERENTIAL_CONSTRAINTS base table:
All parts which we already have in Tarantool are represented in _fk_constraints.
Moreover, it stores fields which are absent in ANSI: is_deferred and array of links.
IDK how to remove them from those space and persist at the same time.

If you suggest to implement additional table to represent FK constraints, then
I guess it makes no sense - we don’t have any of schema tables right now.
