even a proof of concept. ;-)
Not that the subject line helps.
To take a specific example and show how this could be useful, let's
look at hotels. You've shot a series of panoramas (after persuading
them that Google Hotelview won't be good enough). They can be added to
the hotel's website as normal, but visitors with an iPad can visit a
sub-site where they can browse nearly fullscreen with text overlays/
panoramas/maps/fancy animations/videos etc.
So far so normal.
Now they see the 'save me' link and discover that they can bookmark
the whole branded subsite onto their home screen where it will act
like a native app. No net connection, it can be viewed on the plane on
the way or kept as a keepsake of the trip etc.

idea, and (b) inevitable that *someone* will do this at some point.
Sooner rather than later, I hope.
It will rely on browsers being up to the job, but it does seem that
this is the way things are going.
