What you are asking about was discussed at the first Worm Community System
(WCS) workshop held this past August at U. Illinois. In particular, Curt
Jamison at Community Systems Labs (CSL) is attempting to gather data on gene
expression and correlate this with the cell lineage which is already in WCS.
So it is in the works. I know that some of the people at CSL monitor this
newsgroup, so perhaps they can comment further as to where things stand.
Also, CSL has submitted a WBG abstract describing the workshop and new
directions WCS may be taking.
