Best handled at the application level then. Cloud computing? Not wanting your data unencrypted "over there"? Simply want to obfuscate or encrypt some data stored on a DVD? Nothing stops a developer to encrypt some of the data before storing it in the DB. Details are completely application dependent. Firebird out of the (in)equation.

( And though these are rare events, you can fix the database structure of such a DB with ordinary tools or let other people do it for you: without exposing the secured data. )
