Yes, I thought about something more general: Each x days / weeks the EM 
connects to the TER webservice and asks for updates. That could be new 
categories, a completely new Extension Manager version or some important 
information which should be displayed in the BE.

What we need for this is an EM which is split up into two parts: One very 
small core part which stays in typo3/mod/tools/em/ and another part which can 
be updated like a normal extension.

Of course it would be nice to have the whole EM as an extension but imagine 
questions like "How can I install the EM without having the EM installed in 
the first place?"

We need a team which plans and implements the new EM - like I said already ;-)
