I'm explicitly defending the honor, value & significance of non RDBMS data stores.

Your state reads to me that you only deal with RDBMS data structures.  Do I mis-read this?

Frankly I don't know what precisely defines an RDBMS... the fact that storage is rows & columns & held together with various key flavors, or that SQL is the access language.

I'm quite sure IMS's DL/1 is not SQL.

I'm certain that if someone stepped up & demonstrated a piece of magic that swept RDBMS data out to triples (without negatively impacting the production window), folks would be mightily impressed... and the next thing they'd ask: what about my other production DBMS stores?  They're part of my production footprint too.

Remember non-RDBMS data stores have a 30 year head-start on RDBMS in the Fortune 1000.
