One important thing is that preview providers should be out of process,

force that at a higher level it would be much better. That would also
ensure that preview providers don't block the UI main thread, assuming
the communication with the provider processes will be always
asynchronous unconditionally.

I ultimately agree, and I wrote a paragraph to that effect in my proposal...
It's tricky to enforce this in the library, because it effectively means inventing a way for a process to draw into another process that doesn't look like libbonobo, and I didn't really want to go that path...
