@Chris Yes, more tools will be made available, such as a raw database editor to get into the finer details of the SQL data within your database. ;)
I do like the idea of a database editor. Partly because it allows an alternative way of accessing the data.
But also because it might offer the potential to edit labels etc. I'd use it a lot in the resources and contacts sections which have limited utility for me as is. I'd happily pay extra (up to a point!) for this functionality. I suspect it would be a function that some people would use a lot and most others not at all.
