I'm curious, now that the developer preview ROM is out for the Nexus 5:
  • Will it be possible to adapt the Nexus 5 image to work on the Moto G?
  • Does someone already have a plan to do it?

There is no point in using Android L until it's release, it is just a developer preview, to allow devs to make the apps compatible faster.
If you are desperate to try it, you could always use the Android sdk tools and try it in adt.

A port would be awesome though! Just tried Android L on the nexus 7 and it's really nice! Feels much better

I know it's only a preview, but it would be nice to try it, and maybe it works better that one would think.

I guess my main question is if we have to wait until Google releases the source code, or if there's any possibility for ROM-devs to do something with the Nexus 5 ROM for other devices.

Why would devs waste time on such a useless endeavour? Your question really puzzles me…

Google isn't releasing the source for 'L' until the public release so the ROM from a Nexus 5 is likely to be of much help. Plus, the developer preview is pretty unfinished and buggy so I don't know the point.
