Digitized Scholarly Editions

How might digitization enhance scholarly (or critical) editions of literary and historical texts? I’m thinking in terms of incorporation of multimedia, accessibility of bibliographic resources, and integration of reference and/or pedagogical material (such as glossaries for foreign language texts)? What would the “dream” scholarly edition look like (from the vantage points of students as well as more advance scholars), and what obstacles would need to be overcome to implement it?
