"In point of fact, most spreadsheets make perfectly usable SMALL databases."

Sure. For people who can't understand databases, and then find their data were somehow not what they thought the inserted.

I've seen this over and over... and spreadsheets used for tasks they shouldn't be used for is one of the big issues of IT.

And for the matter, any decent email client comes with an embedded contacts database.
