By now, QGIS lets the user edit geographic features and data one by one.
Admittably this is not the way to handle GIS data anyway. Even as a data viewer, QGIS could benefit from an SQL interface.
Query builder is a great tool, but it tries to be easy and forgiving (not dangerous) handling only the "where" clause.
Exposing a full SQL interface could let the user make updates to fields or let the user fully access the GEOS engine to handle geometric problems.
