Just spent a few hours checking out the google linked database facility.
Fantastic!   
We maintain a list of Recommended Medical Specialists for our members around the world.
I was easily able to modify the table entries to match our fields.
There are a couple of improvement that would greatly enhance usability of this feature:
  1. When deleting items from the database is it necessary  to maintain the sequence of ID numbers or could we resequence them on request?
  2. The ability to connect to Google Directions, when desired by the viewer.
  3. The ability to limit viewing on a column by column basis so that the moderators/owners could utilize fields for comments, etc we don't want members to be able to access.
  4. The ability to hide individual rows as needed from members
  5. One last limit - Abiliity to differentiate between owners and moderators on all viewing limits (e.g. the above items 2,3,4 and all other viewing/editing limits.)
We could get along without any of the above by keeping a duplicate database but that becomes onerous with large populations that change addresses fairly frequently.d
