Dropbox and Google Docs integration?

I spotted this article on ZDNET a few weeks ago.  Wouldn't it be great if your Google Docs were more accessible through Dropbox?

Having been a big user of both technologies, my problem with Google Docs is that it sits outside of the standard file sharing and usage. If it were more accessible I think it would quickly become more mainstream.

Dropbox is a service which allows for sharing a folder (and sub-folders) of files between your computers, and the capability of sharing them with a anyone else using Dropbox, or even a public URL share.  It also can create a web interface for people to view your shared pictures.

If the two were to integrate, it would mean having your Google docs on all of your computers, and having them up to date everywhere, so even offline copies would update what you have in your online repository.
