Remotely Upgrading Firmware?

I have a general question about whether or not it's possible to remotely install brand new firmware on a Kinetis micro.

 

The processor would be programmed for use in a product before shipping, but I'd like to be able to add the possibility of remotely reprogramming it over a network, using just the kinetis as the processor.

 

Any ideas on how this could be accomplished in the K60?  I noticed a section on page 104 of the K60P144 Reference Manual that mentions a feature for swapping the starting address of the program flash blocks between block 0 and block 1.  Would it be possible to store a new binary to block 1 or 0 and switch the starting address, then reboot into the new firmware?
