Additional Product view? Separate Template for a product?

Was just thinking…
Would it be possible to give a product a different template than the standard product view.phtml?  I know this would require some custom code, but I was thinking it could maybe use the same convention as the category “landing page” or “layout update” schema.  I might be wrong, but just brainstorming.  Just thought it may be a unique way to customize Magento further?

Any thoughts?

Yes, it is one of the things that are on roadmap, to be able to specify a theme per category and per product.

This way you can specify not only template, but different global css or layout.
