One value I'm running into now is "playing nice with others". 

We're testing a third-party component, Aspose.Word, 

* http://www.aspose.com/Products/Aspose.Word/

and the API uses DataSets and DataTables for the more interesting
master/child reports.

Right now, we're using some simple glue code to convert a HashTable
into a DataTable, so that we can pass it to Aspose.Word. Of course, I
keep thinking that it would be cool to return a DataTable via a
ResultSet instead. :)

In my own use case, I don't need a bidirectional, disconnected
DataSet. We just need to create a DataTable to pass to this other API.
