I've (c.q. "the rest of the world") always maintained that this is
comparing chalk to cheese. Your two minisculed examples are SQL
databases. Since when has a SQL database been able to propagate parts of
itself to other SQL databases spread across a network? Since when has it
had a hierarchical structure defined by the IETF? Since when has it had
the propensity to do referrals Etc, etc.

Who defined SQL as being "a real database?" Why aren't f. ex. BTREE
databases, ISAM-based databases"real database"s?
