We now introduce the following refinements to the algorithm:

- If the parent expression is a relation, then do not perform substitutions on the children themselves. Proper subexpressions of the children are still considered for substitution.
- Consider attributes as well as the children of an expression for substitution.
- Use a different weighting scheme for deciding when to
substitute for attributes by introducing a third constant,
`*attribute-complexity-threshold*`. This constant is used to scale`*proportional-complexity-threshold*`when considering attributes.
