This might be a touch simplistic, but could what you're trying to do
be also achievable by using method modifiers via
Class::Method::Modifiers (::Fast, too)?  I realize it's not what
you're going for (full-blown DBIC on Moose), but it would seem to
enable what you want -- e.g. triggers and type constraint checking in
the form of before or after modifiers on the accessors; coercion via
around -- without doing quite as much violence to the underlying
