There is very rarely any justification for directly interacting with the database. Drupal provides an API and high-level functionality for storing and retrieving node content. Authors of contrib modules have created tools for importing delimited data and XML in many common formats. You should exhaust all of those avenues before you consider directly interacting with the database, and if you do, you should first have a thorough understanding of where and how Drupal stores data.
I agree that with that viewpoint. We should not start messing with the database directly, but implement this in the drupal-way (using the Drupal API for accessing the database)
