We're doing it as kinda row based ("structure based" ?) with using the
table protobuf message as a standard interchange format for it.

This enables some really nice things - like replicating to non-SQL
systems. Or even just sanely replicating to a SQL system that doesn't
share your exact syntax and defaults for DDL (i.e. anybody that isn't
you, at the same version).
