Personally, I would love to see something like that for ebooks and documents. As long as I have a valid license I should be able to read the document on any device I own. I do not have the programming expertise to do this not by a long shot.
I doubt writing software to do that would be legal in the US. Since it would fall afoul of the DMCA.
