I wish more databases were developed with modular, reusable pieces. RocksDB is already a popular storage engine for anyone building a database today. Throw iterlib[1] (shameless plug) on top of it, you get a query API for free.

Now you get to innovate on top of these modules using reactive APIs, user space TCP, Fancy serialization, Standards compliant SQL etc.

Some of the current incumbents were written in the 90s when C++ was a different programming language, which hurts innovation.
