You need a couple of things to make something like this work:

   - a means for a station to find out, prior to AOS, what would
     be useful to download ("What do you need...")

   - a means for a station to distribute the proceeds of the
     pass to interested parties ("Here's what I've got...")

Both are straightforward. Hmmm...(the sound of an electric grape :-)
