I love this idea basically.

But. if I assume we want to use data collected with GPS receivers, as 
far as I know the quality of GPS location with regard to terrain height 
is not very good even if the x,y coordinates may be very good.
"Vertical accuracies for these GPS units are 2 -- 3 times that of the 
horizontal accuracy, and should be used only for informational 
purposes." (http://water.usgs.gov/osw/gps/)

Nevertheless I'd like to have a server providing (very) good terrain 
height information.
