Unfortunately there was little response to this.
Some clarification might be in order, if there's any interest.
I don't believe that relational databases have any "inherent"
superiority over other types of DBs. Although I do believe the key
features which many currently have, are important to event-driven
persistent world simulations. The only reason relational
technology commonly contains these features is because it has been
demanded in the commercial environment. If those features become or
are available via "homegrown" DBs, OO-DBMSs, persitent store
mechanisms, or trans-mogrified xDBMs and xBASEs, then they are
certainly suitable and appropriate. Calculated and simulated
persistence are also valid designs (cf. Nathan's Physmud++).
