Maybe, we certainly tried to design the base classes so other types of loaders (rather than file based ones) could be added as required.
However I’d be reluctant to include any SQL in the core libraries, adding an SQL dependancy would risk making it more complicated and difficult for people to use. We used files as a first example because it is easier to look at xml files at the configuration and to exchange them rather than DB dumps.
There is a problem that oreapp does assume a file based approach, this should be factored out, but the rest of the libraries do not assume it, so in theory the xml source can come from any stream.
