I like this idea and agree with da2ce7. I would prefer an email address and strong password to generate the key as this would further reduce the potential for collisions.

A shared secret could still be used to prevent loss due to forgetting the password (say the person dies).

It would be really nice to have a client-side script (either browser plugin or self-hosted javascript) that can query a web service to get your balance from an email/password combo

Isn't that basically giving the site your wallet.dat file?

No, it would be held in your browser until you refresh the page, with only the deterministic public addresses being queried. I said self-hosted so that you're sure that the site isn't posting your private key back to the main site, web based so that it's accessible everywhere.
