i wish i remember this at all times when i meddle with my systems :)
Remember also the first rule of intelligent tinkering: save all the pieces! :)
An Omni WebDAV hosting service would allow OmniGroup to eventually extend such a service into a web based version of OmniFocus. It could become a very nice recurring revenue model for Omni. It could evolve to where there could be a 3rd party API for others to integrate or write their own clients. Eventually, the OmniFocus fat client(s) could cost much less - or even be given away as an offline desktop web application. But I'm sure these discussions happen often at the Omni headquarters. ;)
Personally, I hope that OmniFocus never has a web service only. Like google. At least with mobileme I have client software where my data lives, that also syncs to a web interface.

So syncing to my client computer with a web service... yes.

I don't ever want to be without my OmniFocus. :-)
Network connections through wireless are still spotty. I want my data to be on my phone, or on my computer no matter what is happening with my internet service provider or location.

If OmniFocus offered a web version only, then I am at the mercy of my Internet Provider to reach my data.
I didn't read the suggestion as being that Omni should move to a model where your only option was to use a web-based solution, but rather that those who couldn't use a Mac-based solution could still have access to their data from the nearest web browser.

I'm not sure I would hold my breath waiting for Omni to do this, however; they have already expressed a lack of interest in being in the service provider business, and web-based application construction isn't an area where they've previously ventured, so far as I can tell. Perhaps I'm too cynical, but my expectation given the hue and cry raised over charging $20 for OmniFocus for the iPhone is that no one will want to pay for the web version either. So, to sum up, we've got a new labor and capital intensive business in which they have no experience, and expectations of small revenue streams. How could they possibly say no? :)
