We all have
to accept that spreadsheets will always be 'abused' when
a database may be more appropriate, until someone invents
a whole new database-spreadsheet hybrid.

True. However, Calc (and other spreadsheet applications) offer a
bunch of very usefull tools for working with data, that are held in
a spreadsheet. From my observation, approx. 80% of all use cases of
spreadsheets is having data in lists.

In order to benefit from the usefull tools, Calc users need to
understand database-like structures. For example, in order to
benefit from DataPilot you must not separate your data on several
sheets, just because they belong to a different time period. ;-)

It´s not the users to blame for not knowing about these facts. Blame
it on authors, trainers and teachers... and on people who are not
willing to beleive, that productively using an office suite needs
some education on it.
