please remember us when the list of "2-to-5 values that never change"
change. and we tell you "we told you so".

In the main, I absolutely agree (i.e. I don't think lookup tables are
inherently "bad").

However, in this particular instance, the check constraint is a perfect
solution (I won't bore you with the reasons why).
