Yes, realtime-store doesn't support federation and has no conception of
wave's Conversation Model, instead it provides a JSON like api to access

In fact, realtime-store uses GWT's new JsInterop and @JsType to translate
java to javascript,  uses J2ObjC to translate java to objective-c :)
But for wave, i have no confidence whether it could be translated.
