Okay, given what has been discussed in re: ADOdb support, what possible downsides are there to making WP rely upon ADO, with the obvious exceptions of 1) reliance upon yet another outside package and 2) potential performance concerns?
Not potential. Definite.

Size is another concern. Adodb would almost double the size of WP.
Rewriting every query to work with Adodb, which means rewriting the
whole method for which we handle dates, which is MySQL DATETIME

Other possible concerns are upgrade path if this was to (for some

Since you mentioned upgrades, I guess plugins could be an issue as well. It would be nice if an abstraction layer had been there since day 1.
