I think we largely agree on facts and are saying some of the same things from different perspectives. Right now ORMs and applications can support multiple databases but if the db/orm/language become more tightly coupled then I could see that no longer being the case. Applications built against newer databases like Couch and Mongo seem to be much less portable than traditional SQL applications.

As you say, if each database engine wrote their own custom ORM then developers could write better queries and get better results more safely but it would increase lock-in which is not an unmitigated positive.
