The lack of (or too-weak) safety & consistency guarantees will waste more time than it saved way before 5 years are up. More like within 3-6mo of going to production, if not before you hit production. Even more true if you're dynamic the whole way up (JS-to-JSON-to-[Ruby/Python/JS]-to-NoSQL and back again).

With the usual caveat that yes, some datasets & workloads probably do benefit from certain NoSQLs, but that's a pretty small minority.
