We're going to pretend that the existing database can't be changed, but only extended. This way folks with existing Northwind Demos will "just work" against NotNorthwind. This plug-ability should also encourage people with demos to extend their existing those of things like web frameworks but are just using the database as a place to find scenarios.
We'd like it to support (either via creative SQL or multiple versions) multiple databases like mysql, SQLite, Oracle, etc.
We'd like it to be an existing "legacy" database that ORM tools could each build on top of so we could compare apples to apples.

One task suggestion out of the gate would be to get a working .sql of the current Northwind written for the various databases as a version 0.01--sort of a first unit test for what currently exists.
