Actually, this is very much what object databases tried to do, and I think
it's a mixed blessing.
I think it works if you raise the level of the programming language so that
it's declarative and has awareness of the database schema and type system.
I don't think it works if you lower the level of the data manipulation
language so that it's procedural and lacks that awareness. That's what a lot
of object database systems tried to do, and I think it's what LINQ does.
