Interestingly I just wrote an article on dzone (published in their NoSQL zone ;-) ) about building encapsulated data models on PostgreSQL. I discuss a bunch of ways of doing this. I totally agree with the idea that one should encapsulate data in application, but that's what an RDBMS is for if you know how to use it.

My approaches to db interfaces have been greatly inspired by REST and SOAP. The thing is giving up on the RDBMS is usually the wrong choice. If using NoSQL, usually it is best as an adjunct to the traditional RDBMS (particularly for pre- and post- processing).
