It's not supposed to be very different, but I clearly see how it would
ease handling a lot. Try building 4 dupli-lights with about 12x12 lights
each (= 148 spots per light) and you get 576 spots in one scene.
Unfortunately, these are visible in the viewport and pretty much occlude
everything. Whith the proposed appraoch you'd have your usual 4 lights,
nice and clean. I can only recommend trying to setup an advanced
lighting-solution with dupliverted spotlights. It will quickly become
evident that these are not very practical. Fake-area-lights could make
the usage of shadow-buffered spotlight-clusters amazingly simple.
