I agree, but getting cross-technology experience is terrible hard! The problem I think is that the technology is often dictated by the skills-set of the company(s) involved. Trying to tell an all Oracle company that DB2 is the best tool for the job is a hard (or vice versa), and possibly stupid. Stupid because they shouldn't be building something they don't have the teams to support.
