A Chrome OS system can be backed up by providers other than Google. The answer is to use services which treat data the same way the free software movement treats code.
What you're saying is that Chrome OS could hypothetically back up its data to providers other than Google if Chrome OS were based on applications that use CouchDB databases.
But the point from the article is about Chrome OS that is actually available. For mail, for example, it uses Gmail. CouchDB notwithstanding, the user's mail cannot be backed by someone other than Google.
