Off the top of my head, videocategory and filemarkup reference
videometadata directly. Then you have crosslinks in videometadatacast,
videometadatacountry, and videometadatagenre, which link with videocast,
videocountry, and videogenre, respectively. The links should be
deleted, but the cast, country, and genre entries could potentially be
in use with other videos.
The recording tables have a housekeeper task that runs daily and removes
any such orphaned cruft if the primary entry in 'recorded' is manually
removed, but the video tables have no such routine.
