Perhaps I have missed the point!  Why not simply use sqlite?

sqlite requires a proprietary database engine to be installed on the users machine, for projects such a click-once deployables, projects without installers etc (or simply for developers who don't want the bloated hassle), this project provides a really simple, really easy to use way of storing the data.

And because it's all XML-based and XML serialized, you could in fact move the data between applications and services without the need for the library being referenced at all.

Hope it cleared a few things up for you.
