There was a talk given at the IBM CASCON conference I attended here in
Toronto this fall by Mike Kozuch from Intel Research.  They're
experimenting at CMU with using this kind of host emulation specifically
to do virtual workstations for mobile computing, a concept which they
also refer to as "internet suspend and resume".  All through his talk I
kept thinking Xen could be used to do something similar with NetBSD.  :-)

I've since found his paper and a related site:
