It certainly sounds like an interesting way to store some data.  It is certainly not going to replace all db requirements, but for simple dbs it could be good.

Does Google Spreadsheets have the 65k limit that Excel did pre Office2007?

If you have restrictions on your site that don't let you write to a proper db why not try SQLite?  Most anguages now have support for it, and it sits in a file on your server.  Firefox & Thunderbird have been using it for user data for a while now.  It's fairly mature.

Cool, lemme know how you go with it.  I'm thinking about using it for my site when I get around to rebuilding it, or at the very least having a test area to muck about with it.
