Default Mobile GPUs

While I have been sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for DB to sub naruto and with no games to play and no Venice to tweak, I have been thinking up ideas for a variety of things.

We are all well aware that GPUs are built in the mobile format specifically for laptops, but how would you feel about a mobile GPU availible for the desktop enviroment.

Obviously less heat, smaller card size, and less power consumption are something the end user would appreciate, so I'm interested in your thoughts as to why GPU manufacturers have not made say a 6800MT or something availible to the desktop platform. Is this something that you would be interested to see?

In my opinion, I'd be all over one of these as would most likely many other users, both for overclockability, and since GPU temperatures are quite dangerously hot now.
