I haven't thought of comparing it to an ORM, but I think that's a fair comparison of one abstraction tool to another.

While ORM's may not always output an optimized query, they usually do provide some mechanism for hinting (like Entity Framework's .Include()). I think abstraction tools that offer that productivity boost but still provide a hinting/customization/override mechanism are the least risky to adopt.
