That's not what I'm talking about. Each application has its own
database requirements and it's common practice to centralize this
functionality into an application specific database abstraction layer.

You can, of course, have this layer use SA to add another layer
of abstraction between the application database layer and the database,
if you feel uncomfortable with SQL, or want to abstract the queries
from their database specific SQL implementation, e.g. in order to
support more than one database backend.
