The Usahidi platform does some of this already, with a more generic application of sharing events from local contributors. I know Google and the 'where' functions in iPhones are already used to locate people and use that information in useful ways--one being traffic monitoring. As for many of the features, the benefit is described only for a disaster while the service would need to be deployed widely before the disaster. Many sections of the proposals are incomplete. Furthermore, the technical details would have merited further attention. Good line of thinking though.
