This is exactly what I chose for iTeXMac2 (is there any other  
choice?). The only problem comes from the texlive200? naming convention.
As it is not static, the installation path should be declared as a  
regular expression which may lead to implementation problems.
A poor man approach would be to store all the texlive paths of a man  
life... starting from 2005

Notice that the distribution for packages and binaries need not be  
the same.

Now the question is how many different distributions are available?

textures: /Applications/Textures.app/Contents/Resources/TeX
Hans Hagen minimal distribution:???

Anything else?
