comment Why was Android's ContentProvider created?
I'm not sure what you mean... if an app is a "third-party" then by definition it must exist in a different process (since every Android app has it's own main process). Also if the Android OS allowed you to have direct access to other application's raw data stores, that would raise some pretty big security issues.
