Could new Google Docs be interface for GDrive?

Google recently announced a couple smaller changes to their new Google Docs product that will begin showing up right away -- including the removal of the "shared with" area on the Docs console page. They say that feature is redundant anyway -- due to the powerful search capabilities already available.

Those small changes are going to be shadowed by a much larger interface change coming in the next couple weeks. The timing isn't surprising, since Microsoft released their Office 2010 for testing on Monday -- but the online solution that will work with Office has not yet been made public.

I am starting to think this new interface overhaul would be a great time to introduce GDrive (Google's rumored online file storage system) -- and make the current Google Docs console more of an online file browser. What do you think?
