Probably not and it would add complexity for the end user.

pgrouting could use the osm data but would require scripts to be run to
build topology on such a dataset. I think the gzip file provided with it
was specifically for people to learn all the steps in building topology
so that's a maybe.

afaik the other 2 apps should be easily able to share data with all the
other applications.

GRASS data is imported into GRASS format and the grassdata folder is a
GRASSDB with Mapsets and locations which is a folder structure GRASS
relies on. I would hesitate to mess with this or put other things in it.
