In our project we don't have precise spatial coordinates for lots of data in our initial data so we have to add them; if they already existed in a known coordinate system it would be fairly easy to create a call to MMS to show the area in question.
Postgres was likely to be our database of choice as it works well w/ MMS (and I am heartened to see in another response to your mail that the GSDL perl DB interface works with postgres) so I can't much advice on SQL server (although I have seen MMS posts that indicate that it can be made to work with MMS).
I'd be glad to lend whatever (semi-skilled) labor/ideas I can.
