How else would one obtain the schema in the first place ? As I see it
there are only two possibilities :

- import from an existing db connection using the db source/named
ranges functionality -this requires a db context/connection and
consequently a db driver;

- import from a file (XML/UML or other Calc-recognisable file type) that
has been obtained by exporting the schema from a database.

The second way wouldn't require a db driver, but is more cumbersome IMO
than being able to query the db directly for the schema because it
requires specific matching of the structure to the internal
representation of a Calc file, i.e. implementation of a separate
import/export filter.
