Yep. Lots of startups have lots of ideas. If you are selling hammers,
you can use the same hammer for lots of projects.  But I'm not a true
believer in the hammer religion.

Argh. What I'm saying is that this is being worked on. And I know from the research perspective in a previous life that it can be made work. The fact that startups are working on commercializing wasn't supposed to suggest viability (it never does), but that products are on the way to market. I have my confirmation of viability of the concept from a different background altogether and I don't subscribe to startup=viability for anything.
