How about suggesting an alternative then? Without it, I'm not sure
I agree it's vague, or encompassing, and could mean anything. Also, 
if a board member has issue with it, then they can speak up, as many of
them are on general@incubator as well.

ORM for column-stores is largely equivalent to persistence, storage, and 
retrieval middleware since ORM just expands to "object relational mapping", 
which is responsible for persistence, storage and retrieval. ORM to me is
more nebulous, so I formulated and expanded description. 

Cheers,
Chris
