Our recent discussion of TAG future directions...
  http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2005/06/14-16-minutes.html#item09

included discussion of integrating P2P distribution protocols
with the web; e.g. for the case where somebody puts a home movie
on the web, it becomes wildly popular (because media
flash-fires happen), and the load on the origin server is
spread around bittorrent-style.

Sandro pointed out in internal discussion that the recent
decision in the grokster case...
MGM Studios, Inc. v. Grokster, Ltd.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MGM_Studios%2C_Inc._v._Grokster%2C_Ltd.
http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/04pdf/04-480.pdf

motivates the P2P to find legitimate application or endorsement
of their technology.

There may be a real opportunity for W3C here. If there are
three or more interested W3C members, I can help them get
a little group started (as open as they like) to noodle on
this some more.
