You've missed a key point here, MEP. More often than not, the "central OF repository" isn't on an accessible machine.
1. Many of us run on laptops, which are typically closed when we aren't sitting at them, so it couldn't be busy serving up the iPhone interface at all hours.
2. Even if we have a desktop or an always-on laptop, this solution means 1) giving it a static IP, 2) opening ports on whatever firewall(s) it might be sitting behind in order to access OF.
Not a very good solution, especially for those of us who have a lot of other hosting options (.Mac, personal web-servers, corporate servers) where we could host an interface if the data wasn't trapped in our central OF repository.
