It is too early to handicap the probable outcomes for these various query language projects. Nor is it certain that NoSQL will achieve the same consolidation the relational market did around a single approach; the differing approaches of the various NoSQL projects argue against this, in fact.
If by consolidation we mean having a query language that pseudo-works (by imposing tons of limitations, like GQL), I think we’ll be better of with custom query languages that take full advantage of their underlying NoSQL database engine.
Programming languages are not unified. Nor are file systems. And we are still using them to take full advantage of their unique features.
