Cool.  Keep us updated.  I'm sure lots will inevitably go wrong :).  One big problem with having this model that isn't widely understood is that there's a deficiency of utilities for implementing common patterns, so you may have to do some things yourself which would be otherwise provided for in other frameworks.  If you hit a pain point, please complain about it loudly, so we can get this kind of folk wisdom and design patterns out there in the wider world.
