It's an interesting concept, if true/feasible, it would seem to be what 
Phillip intended SL to be from the beginning - more of a streaming 
/view/ of a world, rather than streaming updates of what your PC has to 
render. Broadband these days can send video fairly well - the trouble 
would be rendering this kind of realism not just for one person, but for 
20, 60, 100 thousand at a time - on /top/ of the existing computations 
regarding physics, scripting, etc. Their cloud.. better be bigger than 
any existing cloud. I doubt any of the distributed computing "clouds" 
could even handle more than a couple of avatars at a time, and those 
don't guarantee CPU time to any given process.
