Ive done a proof of concept for redis and it was ~200 lines of guest impl code and I had to make one small change to the core create API, but one that will be the new default for creating instances. It was adding a return of a root password. the other differences were the /users and /databases extensions for mysql were not working (for obvious reasons). The reason NRDB was not originally part of Trove was a decision that there was nothing to show that it has a valid impl without substantial differences to the API/core system [1].

As you allude to above, it's all about the API :) As long as the API 
does not become either too convoluted from needing to conform to the 
myriad KVS/NRDB standards or too generic as to be detrimental to 
relational databases, I'm cool with it.

All good in my opinion.
