    The Nissan to Tesla connection wouldn't be J1772, that's AC and is pretty much a dumb connection.
    It would have to be CHAdeMO to Tesla, which is DC and would require a software and hardware protocol translator. CHAdeMO is an open system as it's being publicly installed at government expense, so Tesla could build a CHAdeMO to Tesla adapter and expect it to work.
    Superchargers are proprietary, there are no government installed ones, so it's not clear that a Nissan supplied Tesla to CHAdeMO would be allowed by Tesla software.
    As I've said before, I expect that both CHAdeMO and Tesla DC charging will be superseded by the SAE standard, at least at public stations which will likely be the most common.

    During the shareholder's call (?), when the SAE standard was pointed out to Elon, he said "Yes, the SAE have a standard. But it sucks." Which is why TM went its own way. I rather doubt it will "supersede" TM's standard anywhere except, as you say, the public stations -- which will "suck" compared to TM SuperCharging.
