Care to summarise what the database research community does not agree with Date about?

Looking in from the outside, it could look to some that as Date is not a fully fledged member of the research community (by, I guess, at least partially his own choose) then the people within the community have more disagreement about exactly that non-membership (and the reasons for it) than with his actual views on the relational database model.
But that would just be the view of someone peering in from the outside ;-)
