Yes, those are exactly the sorts of things that I've been playing with 
over the last year.  And I second the reference to Brett Victor's talk 
(actually, he gave some other very enlightening talks and blog posts 
that further develop some of those ideas, which I also recommend highly).

Here are some other implementations of Brett's ideas that I posted about 
in May:

The khan academy code editor (written by John Resig himself) is also 
another implementation of these ideas.  Light Table is another 
implementation of some of these ideas: http://www.lighttable.com/

Anyways, the field is wide open for exploring these things.  It's an 
exciting time to live, isn't it?
