The `sexpresso` Haskell package follows the same idea ;-)

As for using it in Elisp: I don't think there's anything stopping anyone
from making such a `literate-elisp-mode` and even arrange for `load` to
handle such a file (just like there is already a package that lets
`load` work directly on .org files).

I'd welcome such a package in GNU ELPA.
