I'm guessing that folks have already thought of this, but it seems to me 
that there is a need for another sort of venue data - a pointer to data 
that exists in some external source.  So, for example, instead of dropping 
my data into the venue, perhaps because it is too large, I drop in a 
pointer to the actual location of the data.

There is also the problem with the 'data in the venue' model (and also the 
need for local copies of data for shared applications like Powerpoint) that 
you effectively lose control of the distribution of your data.  If I wanted 
to present some information, but I didn't want it to be distributed, then 
the present model wouldn't work for that.  I suppose the 'VNC'-style of 
displaying the presentation would preserve control, but it has it's own
