Some questions for "out of the box" thinking...

What if a database was so efficient that one never had to request for
indexes to be built?

What if a database was so flexible that reorganizing it was routine
and done all the time?

How does tradition table implementation affect these issues?

How should an application's data interface be aware of these issues?
