Someone wrote a fork of offlineimap to store mail in couchdb [1]. The
same couchdb can be mounted with fuse as a maildir [2] for mutt.
According to the author [3], the fuse interface is read only. Assuming
your proposal was implemented, one could complete this work with an
interface to couchdb for offlineimap and get all the features
previously requested.
