Keep in mind that a random number generator is only as entropic as the code that defines it. Just because a 5k "random" (pretend I used to right word there) data generating executable can output "random" (again) data doesn't mean it is more entropic than a 4000k mp3. It's even more complicated than that, but describing "data" is far beyond my writing abilities.
I found your proposed system enlightening, Dani. As others say, it most likely would not function in an optimal manner. Even so, I'm glad you submitted it. =)
