Anybody see a potential RP application here?

I stumbled on this article from the January 2003 edition of "Nature" (Yep, I
finally got time to read it)

In this week's Nature, researchers reveal a porous material that opens or
closes its pores in response to UV light.
Scientists from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and
Technology (AIST-Kansai), Japan, have developed a
nanoporous material that opens or closes its pores under the influence of
light. The modified hexagonal mesoporous silica could have applications in
the controlled release of chemicals, for example in drug delivery systems.
Anybody envision an ink jet style RP printer with molecular scale resolution
and no jets to clog?
