Sounds like there is considerable interest (and various independent
projects working on similar ideas). I wonder if this might be something
interesting for the Tools Special Interest Group (and a reason for those
working on TEI and CMSs to consider joining it):
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/SIG/Tools/ My question was prompted by
something the Education SIG is working on. And there is a new
Publication SIG that might also find aspects of this interesting (and be
of interest to people working on CMSs and TEI).
If you are unfamiliar with them, SIGs are simply groups of people with
common interests in various aspects of the use and design of TEI XML.
The TEI supplies them with some web-infrastructure and arranges space
for SIGs that wish to meet at our annual conference and meeting. Earlier
this year, we had a small grant competition for SIGs that allowed a few
to fund various activities--a programme that seemed quite successful and
I believe many would like to see repeated if the funding allows.

Though not in active development at the moment, I _might_ have an appropriate candidate project this coming academic year. I think that this idea has a lot of promise, so please include me in any off-list threads on this topic.
