We (Epiphany project) are badly feeling the lack of such technology. There are
at least three cases where having something like what you are proposing would have been
a great help.

You can have a look to the problems sharing bookmarks/history in a different way would have
caused on this bug:


Sharing of bookmarks between free desktops
I talked with KDE bookmarks mantainer and we couldnt find a decent way to do sharing apart what

At least for the last reason I think we should make sure that the frameworks is shareable between

Anyway, I really hope to see this happen :)
