It sure is, and I am sure that I will find a way to validate stuff.. just.. wait.

Well, it won't be a .love, as it is pretty useless for a dedicated server to have a GUI, I'm not sure whether it'll be in written in Lua, C++, Tcl, or Fetus (though the last is very, very improbable)
I own a server (well, multiple) but I have one specific one I use for gameservers (http://winsaucestudios.com/
) which could potentially host this...
Thanks for the offer! Of course I'll have to see how this idea grows, but when (or if?) I get to the point where I need a host I will certainly keep you in mind.
I'm not too sure about the format of the library itself, if I ever want to get it incorporated in LÖVE, fast and secure I'll probably need to write it in C/C++, not a problem, but certainly something I(/we) need to think about. In the case I build it as an external library I will probably create an installer for it and this allows people to install love.cloud when they want.
There are a lot of things to think about, but I'm sure this could be a wonderful project.
EDIT: Think about the added value this'll give LÖVE!
