Web based Client?

Just an Idea.
So I don't know if the idea has been thought, of or the complexities of doing this, but would it in any way be possible to have the PMS serve a web client that would be accessed via URL with username/password authentication? So after everything is set up properly, you could access this on a local network, but I would personally use this for quick external access. Say, on a computer that is either unable to have the plex client on it, or just quick access to the library. Obviously, the features would be limited, but I don't see it being completely out of the realm of possibility. Technically, I have no idea how this would work. Maybe over HTML 5 and utilizing the transcoding that is used for the mobile apps to adjust for connection speed. I did a quick mockup of what this might look like visually. Again, just an idea.
