That is exactly the most perfect use-case that would be better in a

Not really since, while for me the prospect of using a DB back end isn't
daunting, for most it is.

Secondly, this is the perfect use-case where a DB back end can't be used
since the process of collecting the data for populating the SS was
organic and constantly changing until it arrived at the current state it
is in where yes, putting a backend on it would work very well BUT, I
can't then send a copy to my co-workers and ask them to use it without
their heads exploding.

One must consider the use-case when deciding how to use the tools available.
