Idea: Datatransfer during conversation

I am not sure if this idea is already described.

When you have a conversation with another OpenMoko user you may want
to transfer some data. It may be a business card or an URL or
something similar.

My idea is to have the smartphone send a synchronizing sound and then
do the data transfer. During the transfer the voice quality will be
degraded or completely missing. After the data transfer the call will
continue normally.

When the receiving smartphone gets the synchronizing sound it will
present to the recipient: "The caller want to transfer 'foo'. It will
take approx 20 seconds to transfer. Do you want to accept?"

The actual data transfer may be done with some modem technology or
simply DTMF-sounds.
