Any plans to do "street view" for other non-street locations?

I noted recently that the street set for the TV show Coronation Street was given the streetview treatment:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...,321.84,,0,5.1

So I was wondering is there any plans to maybe extend this idea to other non-street locations? In particular I am thinking sports stadiums.

I think it would it a very popular feature if you could drop the orange-man onto the centre circle of the pitch for a given stadium and then be able to sweep a 360 around the stands and terraces.

So anyone heard anything about this idea maybe becoming a reality like with the coronation st example? Can't imagine it'd be very hard to do and the stadiums/clubs would be getting a nice profile boost from the venture, so it'd be win-win for everyone involved.

Interestingly after I started this I saw that google had done all 10 stadia used for the 2010 world cup finals.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_FIFA_World_Cup#Venues

Here's an example : You can move around the perimeter of the pitch and look at the stadium from each point. eg Soccer City, Johannesburg

I'm guessing they'll do more of this sort of stuff in time.

I believe Google just took a train through some swiss mountains or something recently with "street view". So now you can be on the slopes, virtually.
