A blog post was written and put out there because there was confusion/issues with 3rd party folks wanting to integrate with GOA. I'm not sure what more is required?

Documenting it in the API docs or on the GOA wiki would have probably been useful.

The wiki currently says:

GNOME Online Accounts Single sign-on framework for GNOME. It aims to provide a way for users to setup online accounts to be used by the core system and applications…

Which reads to me as being there to be used by "GNOME applications", of which I would count Geary, because that the desktop environment it is targeted at. If 3rd party developers were not supposed to use it then that should have been spelled out loud and clear everywhere app developers would see it. Including, as Michael Terry suggested, as a compiler error.
