This is interesting. I like that people are looking in to things like this. As just an average user I would be interested in seeing, in the not too distant future, a system where isolation brings me network transparency for free (or cheap). Ideally I'd like to be able to suspend an application or set of applications (ie, a workspace) on one system, transfer it to another host, and restore it with its state remaining the same. This is possible today at the VM level but requires a complete, heavy OS instance for each workspace/application. The idea is to achieve app-bundle-like ability to transfer programs on a network without requiring one directory per app and to also permit me to care even less what computer I'm actually sitting at.

we can already do that, see my other research, work I've done closely w/ Oren Laadan (who was the lead on the checkpoint/restart portion and is now trying to get it into the kernel itself)
