I also thought about that topic. The out of process functionality for applets could make it possible to call home even if the browser is already closed.
This should of course be restricted to only a handfull of seconds after the browser is down since we don't want to transform applets into demon processes ;-)

I think this could be a quite usefull feature for some usecases.
