Hi All,

Thinking of writing a simple Filter plugin that allows users to display a word document embedded to Moodle. There are two issues I see here : 

1) Safe Harbour - Google does not disclose where it stores its file and data so technically the file and its contents can be stored anywhere around the world 

2) 'X-Frame-Options' to 'sameorigin' - since I'll be using the live service - to convert , say a docx to an google doc format, most sites would have the issue of displaying content from a different origin. 

Do you guys think this could be an issue in the uptake of the plugin ? I dont want to start coding unless I know I am on the right path and don't want it to be shot down by @David Mudrak for any security reasons  ;) 

Thanks in advance.
