There is no count of references (I think this would slow down the
database tremendously).

You can lookup dependencies on your own in the system tables
it will be very tricky to get the number of related records to a given
record that way.

Why do you want to change the value at all?
A primary and foreign key should have no other purpose than
linking/joining records together thus qualifying them. It looks to me as
if you want to quantify them that way.

If you really want to do it you could also try to change the value and
catch the db exception inside the trigger code with a WHEN ... DO
construct and react in an appropriate way.
