  1. It takes time, once it starts getting more attention, more people should innovate. But yes, this would allow this whole plan to happen much easier.

  2. Think of a process that makes very very thin strands of glass now combine them this is a infant stage loom like process using glass and gravity its a very time intensive process that can end up with expensive defects. One way might be to do a process like how large looms that make large numbers of taxtiles its just a very fragile material early in its process.
