This sounds great!

It could qualify as an add-in likely: http://trac.osgeo.org/openlayers/wiki/Addins

I'm guessing this can be of general interest to the library once cleaned up.

I don't think this fits in OpenLayers but it would be good to create a separate repository for this and announce it somewhere here on the users list maybe.
