Re: [widgets] Declarative support for a widget's metadata

> So if a <preference> value is declared, there needs to be good guidance for widget developers on what to expect - e.g. if you specify <preference name="x" value="y"> in the manifest, don't always assume that this will be set by the engine, and have your JS able to handle getPreference("x") returning null and not "y".

No, we will make it a MUST that preferences shows up at runtime (at
least on first run) as part of the  Storage object.

Kind regards,
