I don't think it is a solvable problem. We can do things to make it easier.
One of those things is profiles. But, you will never be able to send the
same request to an arbitrary list of servers and get back useful results
from all of them.
I agree with whoever it was that pointed out that if you have enough
influence among your database providers to get them to implement these
ideas, then you have enough influence to get them to adhere to a single
profile of behavior and you won't need the implementation changes.
