Many releases ago I had concluded that was a restriction... although I almost always had to re-encounter the SQL0312 to remind myself; I tend to rely on a short-name to make my SQL statements more compact when composed for sharing. And although there was no change in the function...

Eventually in the v6r1 CREATE TRIGGER documentation came:
Start of change>>All transition variable names are column names of the subject table. System column names of the subject table cannot be used as transition variable names.<<End of change
