LOST in OZ (or vice-versa)

After the last LOST episode, I realized something I can't believe I missed all this time: LOST is a modern version of the WIZARD OF OZ. People in a flying building crash in a strange land filled with fantastic creatures and magical occurances. They're all trying to find some part of themselves they're missing, or lost, that they would have asked the Wizard for if they were in Oz. Charlie could use some brains, Sawyer needs a heart, Locke was looking for courage, etc. Jack was originally supposed to die in the beginning of the series, leaving Kate as the main charactor, so maybe she's supposed to be Dorothy. I wouldn't be surprised if the dog plays a Toto role and leads the characters behind some curtains to find that things are more mundane than they seem. They've already shown a make-up kit in the abandoned medical ward where Claire was supposed to have her baby, indicated someone's a humbug, pretending to be someone they're not.

The clues that inspired this brainstorm are that the name of the man who died in the balloon is Henry Gale, the name of Dorothy's uncle; the Wizard came to Oz in a balloon he couldn't control; and everyone flew out of Australia, which is nicknamed Oz. If I look back over the series, I'll probably find more clues I missed.
