Maintaining schemas is still a lot of work,. and i fear adding  
another layer of complexity to it will start making it unmanageable.

Oracle, MSSQL, db2, mysql, sql lite, postgresql.

This means we're going to be doing essentially the same work 6 times  
over. And that's only for core, the majority of contrib
modules will still not work on other db's.

I also seriously doubt that just adding referential integrity is  
going to draw lots of postgresql experts out of the ether..
