From gene_product to database

There doesn't seem to be any link between the gene_product table and the db
table without going through association.
1. Does GO store sequences that as yet have no association? Such storage
would allow questions such as 'what are the proportion of gene products in X
that are associated with a term Y.
2. Is there not the potential for namespace collision as there is no UNIQUE
constraint on gene_product.symbol ? (with a database id field as db_id one
could add a constraint such as UNIQUE(symbol, db_id).
