This is precisely what I did in a distributed hypermedia system about 10 
years or so ago now.... all UI's, user interactions, and the shared state of 
the system was available via S-expressions. 

When you started up the system, you could connect to any other node, and the 
shared state (whiteboards etc.) was downloaded... as S-expressions that were 
evaluated to instantiate the current shared/personal UI (this was a 
peer-to-peer system, though some peers were more equal than others ;-)).

I've been wanting to build this in XML for a while now...
