Yes. The backend directory is relatively plugable. So, apart from the 
general potential consistency issues with mongoDB, it should be possible 
to write a DirectoryService backed by any database.

You need to implement a DirectoryService and DirectoryRecord in txdav/who.

Be aware of caching, augmenting and the DPS service which can complicate 

txdav/who/util.py contains the code to put everything together and 
create the final directory used.
