I really like this. Usually i have a "white" blend texture just for this 
case in nearly every of my files. Even without a texture this modifier 
has a lot of use cases. Lately i was creating seams on clothes with it 
(vertexgroup = height, white texture to make it do something). One thing 
I'm still missing would be an extrude-modifier. ;-)
