I think a lot of sites are unnecessarily dynamic these days - news
sites that serve up stories from a database, wikis that do the same,
etc.  And anytime you are using a database table just to map one key
to one value, the same thing could be more efficiently done in the
filesystem, especially nowadays when filesystem optimization is
getting some attention.
