how would this method remove the slew of security vulnerabilities and other development issues?

there's nothing wrong with green field dev. especially in this case. fairly sure slapping on some 'federation functions' would result in a hell of a mess.

not so sure about that. If you, for example, build a google buzz interface to the facebook backend, you can take advantage of the federated open stack that's being backed big time by google itself, as well as the Mozilla project (ie Salmon protocol, etc)

Diaspora is based on salmon, push etc
