I think there is a market for this but it is getting wide interest because Apple won't have a solution until iCloud and that probably won't be multi-platform.

I would suggest you make this solution available to companies to host themselves. There are a lot of companies who want to maintain control of information themselves.

I work for one such company and would be happy to talk to off list about this.
