    It's a neat idea, but there are a few issues.

    First, the idea of making real clouds to mix in with the insubstantial ones that have something interesting to explore is awesome.  However, a good number of people play with clouds off for various reasons, so these structures would stand out like sore thumbs instead of being hidden amongst the clouds.  Similarly, some people who don't currently play with clouds off would switch to doing so because they would be able to see the cloud structure more easily.

    Another issue is lighting.  As it stands, you can't build any floating object without making a giant shadow underneath.  That would cause problems in two ways.  The first is they would be very obvious if you get close because there would be a giant black shadow on the ground.  The second is that giant black shadow would be a giant mob trap.  So they would need to figure out a way to have a big structure in the sky while also allowing the light to act like it isn't there.

    I like the idea.  The only problem is that if someone builds a house on the cloudline and a castle came along, it would potentially be worse than a charged creeper.

    An alternative way to introduce cloud structures would be to add a cloud dimension. To enter this "Cloud Dimension", a portal frame needs to be built out of quartz blocks (activated with flint and steel, just like a nether portal), and its height needs to be above 192 Y. Inside the new dimension, there is no floor, only large clouds and cloud structures. Falling off a cloud could either kill you as the void does, or teleport you back to the overworld to fall to your doom.
