Relational rules but document-handling capabilities
EnterpriseDB is a system that present more of a challenge to use than MySQL, but meeting the challenge is likely to be worth it. Giving EnterpriseDB JSON support for JSON document handling, for example, is a great addition to the system.

You can't have your cake and eat it, too
Okay, so a data model gives you consistency, but it also gives you rigidity. RDBMS have been supporting JSON for some time now, but that hasn't sapped demand for NoSQL databases. When data changes and you want to add new fields or bring variable data into the mix, it's back to revising and reimplementing the model in RDBMS. There's a place for both types of products as they each have their strengths and drawbacks.
