sorry but I am not sure to get your point.

At the moment, the clients (possibly stores the logs, for later upload) 
upload to their respective online dbs.

Jan, from the FSO team has built a proof of concept of a service on the 
phone (see FSO 5.5 beta announcement), which based on the db of raw data 
from the online site it downloads, builds a local db and propose a cell 
based location service directly on the phoone.

I don't know how (if) an update mechanism is implemented so far.

Is this what you have in mind?
