Kathryn looked at our system and proposed building it out as a temporary CMS. After all, the spreadsheet could carry a lot of weight for us: quickly segmenting chunks of text, handling multiple users, tracking versions, and easily exporting its data.

For a completely different reason, I made a similar project for retrieving spreadsheet files from drive: https://github.com/FranciscoP/drive-db

It powers http://makersupv.com/ and has never given any trouble. We were using Google Drive for everything so it just made sense, and everyone was happy compared to the super-complex Wordpress that we had before.
