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.

Two questions: 
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).

Many thanks
