The differences you site have more to do with SQL syntax compatibility
than differences in the database.   

The create table and crtpf bot create DB2-400 database files.  but SQL,
being a cross platform language, doesn't know what a multi member file
is, because that's a 400 specific file type.  the ovrdbf command more or
less "explains" the concept to SQL.
