Update-able Torrents

I'm sure this question/feature-request may have been asked before. I'm fascinated with the bit torrent and it's potential but most of the ideas I have for utilizing bit-torrent require the ability to allow torrents that can be updated and, those updates being able to propagate to all seeders. I understand now that it is not possible - you would have to create a new torrent. This is inefficient because the new torrent effectively invalidates the former yet there is no way to link them and, you'd need to proliferate a new torrent, potentially with many duplicate files for only a small change. It would be *wonderful* if torrents could somehow allow change, versioning and propagation. Is that on the roadmap or otherwise specifically discouraged?
