[Oliver Peters] "How is FCP X any more of a database than Media Composer or Premiere Pro with embedded XMP data? Somehow I simply don't see that as being true. For example, there is ZERO database functionality outside of the Events currently visible inside FCP X at any given time."

Well, FWIW, I got this from someone who's quite familiar with the guts of FCP X...

It's more of a database than Premiere Pro because XMP metadata is only in the files and read into the App. PPro is a project based (binary file) application. Media Composer is fully database driven.
Each Event in FCP X is a database as is every Project. You can select multiple Events and search across all as if they were one database (try that in PPro or Media Composer)
None of the three apps has any database functions outside the limits of the project (or Events)

Again... FWIW..
