I don't see why you need a shared database to do this, when all you need
is a shared filesystem. You'd need a shared filesystem anyway, since
rhythmdb just hands out URLs to songs. The URLs would have to be valid
and accessible for all users on all machines.
In 0.9.3, rhythmbox will scan the library directory on startup and add
any new files, and monitor it to update the database as files are added
and removed. Maybe I haven't thought this through as much as you have,
but I don't see what else you'd need.
