No, I don't think so, it is simply too big. And also think about this: people who want to use a 30" display ususally don't buy an all-in-one computer. Plus all the iMacs use notebook technology inside (RAM, processor, etc. so the heat can be dealt with easily). With regular processors that suck up 80W+ of power, this design is not possible any more. And where would you put the expansion options? Behind the display making it look like a giant shoe box? Beautiful! That's what you get when you look at certain HP office "all-in-one" boxes where a small form factor computer is placed behind the display...
The 24" is different in the sense that it combines a fair amount of computing power with a big size display. That's for consumers, however. They seem to like all those widescreen displays for DVD playback and home movie creation etc. But for me, even the 24" would be too big, I prefer my 20" display at 4:3.
