	There will certainly need to be an API somewhere (perhaps even
	standardized), but I hope this isn't meant to imply that this work is
	in scope for this group.

I don't mean to imply that the API would be in scope, but that the
functionality that it implies at the XMLP layer has to be thought
about.

It also might shed some light on how our notion of module manifests
itself on the sender side.  We've tended to think about how a
processor finds a handler to process a block, and very little
about how a block gets generated in the first place.
