Network rewards for core development

Would it perhaps be possible to automate core development rewards, like how data popularity and farming are rewarded? I imagine core code updates will be distributed to clients over the SAFE network itself, once it is live. Developers could sign these updates and include (possibly weighted) SafeCoin addresses. If we can let close groups somehow approximate the popularity of these updates, these SafeCoin addresses could be automatically rewarded. This way the SafeCoin last capital flow intended to strengthen the network’s growth would become distributed and trust-less as well.
