Good point. This suggestion has come up several times. I consider this an "implementation consideration" more than a "design consideration". (If you feel differently, let me know.)

I've added this to the wiki:

 "W3C-as-platform. There have been suggestions that, in addition to providing a base (W3C-supported) platform, we make available data and/or APIs so that people can innovate (some of which can be ported back to the base platform."

Noted! ;)

(I've added "progressively enhanced" to the existing text on this topic in the wiki.)

Thanks again, Aaron.
