It is possible, and I think that possibility may be a barrier to Canon including such things in a 1D (which is built for the pros and not the GWC's).
Mind you, as was said before, it would be difficult to police this issue from an organsisers point of view, how many people in the stands take phones in to stadia, photograph the game and have the ability to send them as a picture SMS?! That breaches licensing rules on 2 counts, but everyone does it.
Not to dredge up "the past" with this, but a barrier to the 1D having video capability is listed here...

These are the only sets of guidelines I could find on my laptop today as I'm on a day without much to do (and am watching Airport on TV). Certainly it would explain perhaps why the D3x doesnt have video capability.
