If the battery is still in the car (I guess that is what V2* means afterall.....) then yeah, go Nissan. It does raise the question of how much degradation the extra cycling would cause.
If I went down this path I think I would do it with a cheap 'worn out' battery or one from a wrecked car in which case the battery would be a stand-alone device and wouldn't need any Nissan proprietary equipment.
Extra cycling effects; minimal. Realize that V2H does not involve the abuse of power surges to over 100 KW or swings to regen to nearly -60 KW.

In Japan, where this is already being done, excessive degradation is being reported. I'm explaining something that is already being seen (degradation of the packs), not speculating on what might or might not happen.
