We have put together a design guide for application authors here:
Feedback on this would be appreciated.

Let's start this discussion now then!

Ted talked about this here:

Now that module proposals are open we'll likely propose it as an
external dependency next week (we're in a feature freeze crunch this
week). Currently we're working on some patches for applications and
should have more of them in an upstreamable state after this week
after we get more testing and reviews on the work.

If anyone is interested in following along you can track the work
and for the major ones I've filed placeholder bugs in b.g.o so that
when they're ready and tested we can just post them there.
