Yes, and via R2RML you can make a Linked Data view over any ODBC/JDBC 
DSNs connected to Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Sybase, Informix, Ingres, 
MySQL, Firebird, PostgreSQL and anything else . Then subject to your 
tool at hand, leverage locality aware cost-optimization. Basically, this 
is what Virtuoso has always offered (since 1998) on the RDBMS 
virtualization front. R2RML now allows us up the ante by leveraging URI 
abstraction and Linked Data.

Anyway, you'll see my demos which will cover all of this. Thanks to 
R2RML we finally have the ability to showcase a major DBMS technology 
fork at the data access level :-)
