John, Not the near future it's already here I can't say where (forum rules) but it is....although you have to already be a basically a five star worker on their site before you can apply for the instant task work that actually is another site from the original or a sub-set as you mentioned...I don't know the complete rules of it or know enough to really comment on the legality of it all ... but it's already here

Was just about to point this out. Not so sure if Donna and I are speaking about the same thing but there is also a company named after a rainforest doing pretty much exactly this.
Also the compensation there is horrible.
This is an example of people for whom a more advanced version of "Good Fit" would be welcome:
A brand-new oDesk contractor created an account and posted a new thread whose title reads simply "What's my job?"
There is no content in the post itself. Just a new contractor patiently waiting to be told what to do.
I am not criticizing this new person. But it is clear what type of service she would like oDesk to provide. And it does not provide that.
