Not sure, they were just illustrative examples though. Epiphany is not
using tracker at the moment, for example (although I'm considering it
as an option).

Well, on one side this is the classical chicken-egg problem, isn't it?
The first move has to come from somewhere. I agree that it makes more
sense for applications to be already using something before it's
proposed, but it's also true than doing things that way we tend to
operate in a 'Fait accompli' mode were maintainers make decisions and
everyone else is just informed about them. Not that there's anything
wrong with that (even more, it's probably the best way to do
things...), just saying that this is a good moment to talk about
Tracker than any other :)
