Note that database access for Flex does not have to be implemented as
an ANE. I wrote a PostgreSQL driver using the raw Socket APIs in
Flash: https://github.com/deafbybeheading/pegasus

It's true that this is probably of limited usefulness outside of AIR,
and so maybe ANEs are a simpler way to achieve generalized database
access rather than trying to add a database access API to the Flex
framework (à la JDBC), but I thought I'd throw this out there.
