Motion Adaptive GUIs

A nice little article from Mac Rumors on Apple's patent application for adjusting a graphical interface if the device detects that it's in motion. The example they used was making the interface buttons and targets larger if the device (the iPhone) detects that the user is out running.
I wonder if Apple has considered similarly adjusting the iPhone's GUI for people with big fingers, or the elderly and disabled who have degraded motor control. Still, adapting GUIs to the conditions they're in is a great idea.
