I'm wondering if there's a solution in plain sight here... Several messages in the Installing Linux thread have mentioned VNC (http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/index.html) as a way to view and control a screen from across a room or across the world.
Clearly it doesn't run HTTP as the protocol, and clearly it requires a custom client to be installed, but if those hurdles were acceptable, couldn't it be adapted to let several people view (and only view) a screen, live, with latency close to the minimum achievable?
It's cross-platform, quick to download, and free ($0), so it would seem a feasible candidate for inclusion.
I see a potential win-win, but
