Jason blogged about this which does explain things a bit further


"2. SpatiaLite takes SQLite‘s concept of database-in-a-file, and turns
it into geodatabase-in-a-file, offering a full
suite of geospatial query abilities in a lightweight extension to
SQLite. FDO already has a robust SQLite provider
that uses its own open geometry format, metadata, and spatial
functions. In contrast, SL-King‘s new provider
is intended for users who prefer to use the SpatiaLite geometry
format, and takes advantage of SpatiaLite’s built-in GIS

I think sdf3 also uses sqlite underneath, so that's three differing
implementations for FDO!
