My initial idea was very similar (instead of Linotyp I'd use Cocoon Forms with a 
widget styled using HTMLArea), see The new flat structure 
of documents  (every document is a directory with a bunch of documents) was 
designed to be easily integrated into a tiny, self-written CMS on top of it.

If I escaped my daily work for a few days I'm sure I could come up with 
something useful - I'm sure this is valid for many others in this community too.

Stefano moved it out of 2.2 and will release (or has already) Linotype 2.
