In my proposal, I also gave an example of regex validation plugin i.e. if
some invalid data is inserted then that plugin can replace that invalid
data with some other value (which would be given in plugin options) and if
data is valid then it should go as it is. I am not sure about canceling the
insert with error message right now but it can be done like by setting
value for invalid data in plugin option as NULL for not null column which
would automatically fail the insert or in the plugin itself if validation
fails then it could throw a error and stop the execution of the script
itself or we can have a boolean & error variable in transformation plugin
which would be checked before insert/update and take actions likewise.
