Hmmm... the way I see it, the last step is not necessary. The local app
broker or whatever should contact the Hub app broker and say I have data
in such and such format (use MIME for this?) could you please list the
available viewers? The user would then be presented with a list of viewers
and would choose to download the viewer, save to disk, etc. Sorta like the
way Netscape does it.
