Looks interesting. However looking at the kmz-file I expect that it will take 
at least half a year until we will be able to parse and display this specific 
use case - especially given that this doesn't have high priority yet :-)
Although the kmz tags appearing in the document might mostly be  covered by 
the work Murad is doing during the Summer of Code I have doubts that mapping 
a single image onto the sphere will be implemented any time soon (given the 
way Marble works). 
Well there are other use cases that will surely be equally exciting which are 
expected to work once GSoC will be completed :-)
