Thrift is probably the most used in the field but then again it's a
complete guess at this point as there are no official statements on the
Hadoop web site (or perhaps it is lost within the arcane of the beast) to
what is officially supported or not and by whom. I mean could you also
consider Avro for that task?

It seems new comers to Hadoop/Hbase have to go through the same steps of
"try and see for your own business case". Learning the hard way is
sometimes the best bet.
