Subject Re: scope? purpose? rationale?

Kicking up conversation,

Would db's scope also include projects for:

data caching layers?

database load balancing?

data transform?

How many layers between the application server space and the data server 
space will the project occupy?  What about client GUI's to manipulate 
data structures?

Is db all things database related?  That seems like a big space and 
likely to have a lot of overlap with technology based apache projects 
like xml and jakarta.

BTW - I do like the idea of Apache having a 'db' project.
