Will HTML5 be SQL-free?

A follow up from Kas Thomas (@kasthomas) on the What does NoSQL mean?, a different point of view on NoSQL from the perspective of web browsers.

HTML5 talks about SQL quite openly. And it appears Opera, Safari, and (soon) Chrome are implementing WebDB, which is a SQL database in the spirit of the (emerging) Web SQL Database spec.
