A Key Phrase

In a post by Dare Obasanjo, he says something that might easily be overlooked, but which I think is of great importance if true. In particular, he says:

However the primary scenarios the WinFS folks want to tackle are about rigidly structured data which works fine with using objects as the primary programming model. (emphasis added)
That would seem to imply that WinFS won't be doing much of anything to cure the problems arising from the ongoing information glut: how much of the data most people handle on a daily basis is "rigidly structured"? I'd say virtually none.
