I see it as a relevant but separate issue.

I'd like to see a comparison of ORM modules that is independent of what
software is typically layered on top.

How easily/well certain web frameworks can use certain ORMs (or how
closely tied they are) is certainly important information, but secondary.
It belongs in an appendix.
