Yes it would need an interchange format.

It would not have to be a complex interchange format.
possibly tar and dump files wrapped up in a tar file.

Cyrus is nice and I have used it for decades now.
Its just that moving to a new server involves searching for all the 
places where data gets hidden and trying to migrate it safely.
But I have found the biggest problem with Cyrus is that it works too well.
I don't spend lots of time dinging in the internals to fix stuff so 
every few years when I want to migrate I have to go through a big 
process of research and trial and error to try and get all the stuff I 
need in one place.
