Yes, RDBMS would become a first-class citizen.  New users would be able 
to write some page templates and SQL scripts on the filesystem and have 
them work with no extra effort.  I know I'd like that capability myself. 
  However, I expect ZODB to continue to be the dominant platform for 
writing Zope applications, because ZODB is quite productive for writing 
abstract applications.

Zope is a feast with many kinds of food.  When people come to the feast, 
most are not willing to try everything at once, particularly the entrees 
from the land of OODBMS.  First let them have some familiar foods.  When 
they find out how finely prepared the food is, they'll be ready to try 
the meaty main course.  Although many will still prefer the RDBMS salads.
