In effect, yes, this is an abstract exercise regarding the practice of
chemistry as we know it. Keep in mind that there is to be a continuity; the
kelvin will remain what it is today.  Only the definition will change.  
Also, yes, there is experimental error in measurements and the several values
for the Boltzmann constant is exactly what one expects.  Part of the new
definitions is that a single value will be selected by CODATA based on the
best measurements.  There will be no drifitng values unless and until
someone somewhere raises the isse.  The metrologists pont out that once the
speed of light was selected to define the meter (metre) no one was interested
in measuring it any more.
