Guys:

Consider two projects, both with a DBA.

Team A carefully partitions all modules, including the DB-facing ones.

Team B scatters SQL hither and yon.

Now in both teams, the DBA owns all access to the database, and is the only one authorized to change its schema.

Team A, however, can sack its DBA any time they feel like, and can easily replace the DB-facing modules with some other system.

Team B's DBA is the lord of all he surveys. He or she has perfect job security, and a lot of clout in the team's decisions.

So what's the /real/ motivation for this thread, guys? ;-)
