Yes, that sounds pretty reasonable.  An online gallery (tidepool?) of
Seaside components.  The WAExampleBrowser is part of the way there. 
Some extra things that would be nice to add: make it easy to show off
different stylesheets; show the class comment and the source for the
example method beside the example; add categories (ie, container vs.
data as you mention).
