Long tail Feature Requests

Recently Chris Brogan wrote about LinkedIn features he needs. After reading his post and comments along with Highrise customer forum I came up with the following:

A LOT of people want features which are extremely valuable, but only for a small group.

And they are willing to pay for them. If it’s possible to create a sort of Features API for a particular App then a user can pay to a “features vendor” for developing and hosting features, which are relevant for the user.

“Feature vendor” here is a third-party developer or company not affiliated with the App vendor.

This is how everyone benefits. But we have a lot of problems here: conflicts, privacy…
usability!

I dunno…What do u think?
