This is, unfortunately for the time being, a non-starter in certain business domains. For instance, I recently designed a data mart for a large financial services company. A non-relational, schema-less datastore made a lot of sense here — the client wanted extreme flexibly (that is, as the data mart evolved, they wanted to add new sources of data — i.e. more columns) and they wanted speed (both speed of development and speed of reads).
