Soren,

Think of DabbleDB as a webby EAV/CR model equivalent of Microsoft Access.

If they decide to imbibe the Linked Data meme, we would end up with 
something truly exciting for high level interaction with the Linked Data 
Web.

btw - DabbleDB is written in SmallTalk, the inspiration for 
Objective-C', that also provide inspiration for HTTP.

All we want to do is put stuff in spaces that endow each data object 
with HTTP based Identifiers in line with the Linked Data meme, once this 
is done, data fusion (or data meshing) becomes incidental and implicit.
