The no-nat-nonsense attribute of IAX could be significant.

However, you are mixing "very-real-time" traffic with 
"not-quite-so-real-time" traffic. A database query that takes another 
500msec is usually not a show stopper.

Also, IAX is UDP and database connections are (usually?) TCP. How do you 
see resolving this?
