Dropping files might be accepted, but not DBFiles.
Having no "pure file" support, would mean that users would need a better 
"remote manager", and since there's nothing like this for JAMES with DB 
at the moment, it would mean the JAMES wouldn't work out of the box.

DBFiles are great, and from our tests, is the best combination possible. 
These days, mails are big and have attachments too, and we found no DB 
till yet that would be able to handle this the right way(with the same 
hardware like the one used for DBFiels). Having the headers only in the 
DB is: "taking the best of both worlds" :).

Just my 2 euro cents :).
