Long story short, I just had to RMA my Nexus 5 for an intermittent problem with my power button.

I've been running DroidKang for quite some time and I have a backup ready to go. My question is - as long as there is no EFS data being restored, I should be able to install the backup from my current N5, correct?

If there are any problems I may run into, please let me know.

Thanks!

If your plan is to restore a nandroid without the efs partition you should be fine. The nandroid should be just the system, data, and boot partitions.

how could you even validate the nandroid has no EFS partition?

You have to specifically include it in a backup.
