Or just design the frame for hanging the panniers like that (There are some already around that do this, but I don't recall any FS ones)
That would be great. I'd love to find a frame like that (along with room for batteries down low.)
I can think of the Tout Terrain Panamericana. I'm not sure if it's still available, but it was an answer to the question we're discussing:

And there's a bike here on ES somewhere that has it's front rack as part of the frame itself, cantilevered out over the front wheel (kinda like your cargo bike, Chalo), and also has a rear pannier frame or something like the Xtracycle type attachments, I cant' remember which. IIRC, it's a custom build by an ES member, but can't bring to mind who it might be.

Kick down the barricades Listen what the kids say.
From time to time people change their minds But the Frock is here to stay.
I've seen it all from the bottom to the top Everywhere I go the kids wanna Frock.
Around the world or around the block Everywhere I go the kids wanna Frock.
