Personally I like the idea of updates, etc; happening "off-box" to be cached for multiple machines. In a bandwidth metered environment, I hate having to download the very same content on multiple Macs. Download Once, Use Everywhere (please). Secured data in the cloud, and on an edge device like a time capsule would be a good solution. Stay tuned, all will be revealed, I hope!</p>

Looks like the answer is No, so far.
