It is not clear to me that this text talks about APIs at all.
It seems to be about the *internal* structure of a database, which -
in my opinion at least - has very little to do with an *interface*.

Henning Makholm                        "Detta, sade de, vore rena sanningen;
                                 ty de kunde tala sanning lika väl som någon
                             annan, när de bara visste vad det tjänade til."
