It dawned on me that the next ipod (touchscreen) would make quite a nice contextual interface device connected to a mac.

A good example would be use as a Garmin GPS simulator for X-plane, or, as a scientific calculator. I suspect there would be a whole industry of applications that would be built around this (including interactive widgets).

Worth pursuing?

Probably worth pursuing when it comes out. ;) :)
