I think in this instance, he was refering to downgrade in regards to the quality of the database. Many people consider PostgreSQL to be a higher quality database than MySQL, and it also supports a number of more advanced features.
MySQL is more widely available, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's better. ;-)
