I think a more realistic and useful thing would be to add a Hypertext
Extension to Postscript (which, of course, TeX document can convert
into). Then you could handle all kinds of different document formats,
including PC word processor formats, and you could also handle color,
embedded bitmaps, and other things outside of TeX's scope. The code to
do the client-side rendering is already available
(ghostscript/ghostview), and I've seen it embedded in X widgets.
