Let's talk about the general concept first. If it seems worth
pursuing, we'll get into markup later.
I guess I'm not yet convinced by your use case here. An application
would periodically reload the web page for each application to see if
it's been updated? How would the appropriate web pages be
identified? Maybe you could walk us through the entire process of how
you see this working? And how would this system compare to existing
software update systems? Most of the software I use already checks
for automatic updates.
Also, do you have any additional use cases in mind for this?
