It does not helps you.

What a basic SQL query can do,
and what is the limit of the SQL is two different thing.
Even if you do not move everything to the DB side,
the dataset the application need to deal with could be limited.

What is the current optional usage of zookeeper, 
and what it could be used for is very different thing.
The resource tracking is possible.

With stored procedures you can do almost anything,
and in many ceases it is more readable than an complex query.
