I know a lot of DBAs that are adamant about the exclusion of CLR on their databases. There is no subtlety or nuance or discussion with the development team about the possibilities of a given solution actually running better in compiled CLR code. They just trot out the DBA's favorite word... NO. Prior to v12, that was also Microsoft's stance on Azure SQL Database. Not now.
