This sounds a lot like the "cloud" features that Paul Maddox/Modulus Music have been doing with the Modulus 002. That allows patch storage on / updates via an internet server, and thereby enables sharing of patches to other users/via social media/whatever.

It hadn't occurred to me as useful, but I can see that for lots of people it might be. The concept of being able to go to anyone's Modulus synth and log in and then be working on your "own" synth is certainly something new - or at least to me.
