I am very much in favour of leaving all processing up to the application, 
including mosaicing. The only things I see as suitable for the backend are 
things like pyramid generation, basic band-level statistics, and clipping 
with geometries. I wouldn't necesarily oppose a more extended array of 
functions, but I share your concern for server load.
