    Tesla explicitly says no to powering the house with the car.

    From the V2G thread (and what I know also) it's pretty clear J1772 DC (Combo Connector) supports V2G natively. So if Tesla wants to allow it, all it takes is some software (as Straubel is on record saying that Tesla is 100% compatible with J1772 DC protocol-wise in response to a question about the Combo Connector and V2G):

    The Leaf's implementation is a bit different, it's V2H (H for Home) or V2B (B for Building) because CHAdeMO does not support grid communication (although the physical connector supports bi-directional power). It also seems to be a largely proprietary development (it's Nissan technology, not CHAdeMO overall).
