Late to this but great post. Especially like the idea of living, breathing reviews - certainly makes a lot of sense given the speed at which certain evidence bases grow. Myself and some colleagues at the Overseas Development Institute wrote a briefing paper on exactly this topic earlier this year (although our focus was on the use of systematic reviews within development studies more broadly). We came to some very similar conclusions... http://www.securelivelihoods.org/publications_details.aspx?resourceid=68& We also put out an accompanying blog, which attracted a fairly animated debate about evidence-making and -building. http://www.odi.org.uk/opinion/6283-systematic-reviews-international-development-slrc (I realise these come across as a couple of very shameless plugs...)
