Here's my opinion:

 + this is great stuff

 + this shouldn't be limited to deskbar, but this should really be a
   module we have in the desktop to make this possible for all modules
   that can make use of it

 + I wouldn't want to see this active until we have a proper way to make
   this "secure".

I'm no expert in security, so I can't help that much. Would waiting for
the 2.18 release cycle be an issue for desbkar? It could leave us time
to properly handle the security/trust issue and to make other modules
use this.
