No. Siri is an OS-wide solution. It would screw up the other interactions with the device while in that app. It might be possible for them hitch hike off of Siri's technology in the future but I don't think this will happen until OS 6 or maybe 5.1. :P
@zack I don't think they will allow you to open apps with Siri as that doesn't really make sense in terms of usability. It would be infinitely easier to just open the app by tapping it.

Do you think Siri will be able to access databases or sites other than the ones we already know about? I'm also really hopping that I can add events too specific calendars, such as my company calendar and my personal calendar. As more languages get added could it work as a translator? I would love to be able to say "How do you say 'I really enjoyed your work' in French?' and then have Siri translate for me.
SO MUCH SPECULATION!

Siri in iOS 5 on the iPhone 4S is just the beginning- if it is well received and used. Apple is well known for allowing things to stagnate without additional updates or support if the technology in question isn't a huge success (can you blame them?!). From Game Center to Ping to MobileMe, Apple has let things fall by the waste side when the public does not fully embrace it.
With Siri, I think there is a great opportunity to turn a corner in not only mobile/handheld computing but on the desktop as well. And I think allowing Siri to be pervasive in all aspects of the iPhone is part of that. Also as much as people complaon about touch screens and soft keyboards, Siri shiukd make things easier. The next few years is going to be really interesting and exciting. It's a shame Steve won't be around to see it- and lead it.

What we see today is only the beginning. Siri is a very big deal.
