For what it's worth, I'm suspicious of threat models which begin with
"assume the DB has already been significantly compromised..." simply
because there's so much someone can do if they gain even read access that
it's not worth expending a ton of effort hardening Django against those
cases.

Similarly, "assume a SQL injection vulnerability already exists" doesn't do
much for me because for something that lives and dies by the DB, that's
very close to "assume some remote-root vuln already exists and has been
exploited".

So personally I'd like to hear some more about why this is seen as
necessary before I'd endorse work to actually implement it.
