That said, if there is a niche use with a decent sized TAM there is still room for growth and multiple expansion.

This is, of course, the question. That there is a role for NoSQL ... or perhaps, more accurately, non-relational databases there is no question. But, every database is going to add more features every year to broaden their addressable market. To be sure, Hadoop is a quite different approach than Mongo to something other than relational, so the question is, does the fundamental underlying approach of Hadoop match the requirements of a large portion of the non-relational database requirements in a way that Mongo can't, because of its fundamental approach or can Mongo keep adding features, as it has done with the addition of multi-table ACID properties that extend the use cases to which it applies.

My bet would be on the later.
