Not really since nvidia RAID is driver-based you're using the Linux software RAID implementation regardless of the way you configure it. The only difference is the on-disk format (and the fact the BIOS can boot from the nvidia format, but not the Linux-native format) and that the Linux format is a bit more flexible.
I'm not sure, but I suppose the Linux software RAID driver should be able to mount the nvidia format, even when the controller in use is not nvidia-based.
