Is Apple's "Spotlight" Technology just WinFS in Tiger's Clothing?

Since MacWorld, I've been delving through some of the public docs about "Spotlight".  Metadata annotation of files, at OS level, integrated into system commands (e.g. ls).  Sounds a lot like WinFS, but maybe less heavy handed.  I wonder how it will perform.  It might be a good model for how the WinFS team look at the metadata/file problem instead of trying to embed SQL Server into the OS.
