Just blue-sky'ing....what if either the solvent or battery separator could 
change state?   For example, for the sake of discussion, 
suppose the separator "melted" at a low enough temp to change from porous to 
relatively nonporous?  Or perhaps even somethingcould "poison" the electrolyte 
in a heat sensitive thing that might release some other salt.

An additional problem is that the electrolyte is mostly held in the 
separators between the plates. Depending on the specific type of 
battery, little or none of it would flow out if you made a hole in the
