TBH, I think that's a good way of ensuring that nothing will ever get
committed.  You're trying to draw the storage layer boundary at a point
that will take in most of the system.  If we did build it like that,
what we'd end up with would be very reminiscent of mysql's storage
engines, complete with inconsistent behaviors and varying feature sets
across engines.  I don't much want to go there.
