I think this is a good initiative to help making maintaining updates on here more automatic.
@Barleduq: If you aren't willing to create another web account (Twitch) just because you don't want to have yet another web account/password to worry about, keep in mind that addon authors may not be willing to create another web account/password (WoWInterface) to worry about either.
Titan Panel wants their users to create a SourceForge accounts for reporting bugs to their tracker, no-one's gonna want to do that lol... so everyone just sends bug reports in comments on curse and it's a mess. But I digress.
(I figure the bigger addon authors who are already using Git wouldn't really mind the extra effort to upload to WoWI, but I imagine that the less experienced authors who just write their lua and manually zip + upload the folders to Curse wouldn't really be willing to learn all this complicated API stuff, so YMMV if you ask an addon author about that.)
