No way: All technology older than 10 years has to be retired completely 
in favor of new solutions. Anything that doesn't have at least biennial 
updates is deprecated.

SQL has a few good concepts, but pretty much all implementations mimic 
the major mistakes made in implementing the model, such as fixed format 

And Knights of the Circular Queue can vote to veto any sufficiently 
broken technology (in the past, ODBC) to force a rewrite of broken 
technology that becomes firmly entrenched.
