I'm not sure, if I understand what you mean with "downloading motion" and 
"uploading motion".

In a classic virtual world, you download an avatar with some potential(!) 
You use some input device (e.g. a mouse) to trigger a concrete(!) 
The concrete gesture/motion is uploaded to a server and distributed from 
the pilot to the slaves.
Imho, Kinect is no qualitatively new situation regarding this, but it has 
got quantitative differences (the set of potential gestures/motions is
