Yep - this is the answer I keep hearing from people, with the
exception of people who have mixed content and tend to think of it
all as documents.
Peter didn't say relational database... although he did mention Hadoop
I think.

There isn't a single right answer.
I agree. I'm not hearing so much about relational databases per se as I am about shredding approaches, with data stored in anything from MySQL to Cassandra to Neo4j to custom systems that sound both terrifying and unnecessary.

Somehow mixed content leads people to think of chunks as coherent pieces, and some of the shredding cases I've discussed with people keep large pieces of mixed content, typically (X)HTML, in the same shredded bit rather tearing deeper into it.

So for Roger I'd say that I think the direction I see is more hybrid
stores (from Virtuoso to MarkLogic..) and more variation being
acceptable as people come to recognize that different needs are best
served with different technologies.
Yep. I suspect the underlying reality is that people are doing so many things with so many different kinds of parts that solutions are evolving in multiple directions.

Which is pretty cool, actually! Though it creates vast confusion for organizations that just want an answer yesterday.
