apologies; "feasibility" was implied as "feasibility, or lack there of" Therefore the daunting prospect of actually designing and implementing a distributed media system that realizes our goals may, in the end, be the best argument against it; and thus for the centralized. I say "may be" because there may in fact exist opensource code that we could leverage effectively for this task; I'm just ignorant of what's available and of the respective pros/cons..
