I wouldn't say it's near it at all. My idea is a pipe dream at the moment.

I will say that all this discussion of the actual storage layout is somewhat missing the point. Ideally, a DBMS should be able to store data in many different ways, allowing the DBA to optimize various tables/indexes as needed. Even better, the DBMS should figure out the best way to store data based on usage patterns.
