In the end, isn’t this another iteration of “cache invalidation is really hard?” All those denormalized reference values are a de facto cache. (Overall a great explanation of this common problem in real-world contexts; far too often cache invalidation is treated like “someone else’s problem” to be handled with a server config flag rather than a core part of business logic.)
