This sounds pretty interesting, though I must sadly admit that I not an 
experienced enough Erlang/OTP developer to know if it is the "right thing to
do" or not. It does sound like such an architecture could aid in code
reusability. Since simplicity seems to be a big concern with the Erlang guys
(and rightly so), I would be interested to see what their thoughts are on that.
