On the surface, this sounds like the Catalog of Earths only with more 
Grant Morrison genius.

SW10 has pastiches of DC and Marvel Universes, as witness Jimmy Flamer 
and certain dogs which fight over Engines of Reality.  I don't think 
they count as LNH'y, though.  And it would confuse things to make 
pastiches of these.  Though I really can't stop people who want to make 
their own...  8{O>

In short, I may not be the target audience for this push.
