[Walter Soyka] "The data store itself is not as important as what the developers choose to store in it, what methods they provide within the application for accessing and manipulating that data, and what interchange they provide for third parties to access and manipulate that data."

This is true with respect to single-user desktop NLEs, but there is a lot of upside to FCPX's use of the Core Data API for multiple-user scenarios, live sharing, etc. I continue to wish for there to be a shared Event database that FCPX can address as a client to enable live sharing of Events, but that seems less and less likely to happen.

Flat file datastores cannot permit that kind of granular multi-user transaction, which is why for instance shared bins on Avid Unity are read-only for everyone sharing the bin.
