Frankly, I fail to see difference to the add-on product concept, which is

Technically yes.

But technically everything is the same.
- Wav files are just compressed mp3s
- Alien movie is just Jaws on a Spaceship

Innovation is usually the small final step/small difference that makes
people use it in a different way.

I'm also not sure that add on products would currently allow us to
create distribution independent bundles, which is something that would
be nice.
