One of the take-aways from the Data API Design Sprint back in February was 
that we need to move away from assuming that everything is in a single local 
SQL database.  That is simply far too limiting.  

Any import/export/deploy mechanism will absolutely need to operate at the 
entity level, not the database level, because there's no guarantee that there 
will always be a local SQL database in which these things are stored.
