Be quite good if it is TC friendly especially with the TC1.4

It would be the first variable aperture zoom to be Nikon TC-compatible if it is. I wouldn't hold my breath.

If it is compatible with the TC 2.0III could be useful although be quite slow at F/9 - F/11 and only in MF - and quality maybe doubtful ?

Definitely MF only, especially on anything pre-D4/D800/D600 and likely with those bodies too. Whether or not the IQ is acceptable will be up to the end user. f/5.6 + a 2X TC is f/11 wide open and f/16 stopped down a full stop.
