We have a rule though: the account types exposed in 
gnome-online-accounts must be used by at least one core application. 
It's a good rule because it doesn't make sense to have settings in

reverse course and add gnome-documents back to core, the documents 
account configuration settings should move from control-center to 
gnome-documents itself.

That would mean making the application not able to use a single facet
of an account that's otherwise already setup (because there are 6 other
toggles for Google accounts for example), and require the application
to reimplement all the login procedure, re-authentication, etc.
