Hi, Mike-

The Mozilla Open Apps project looks cool, and I hope it can work out to 
be compatible with Widgets.  Your extensions and use cases seem useful. 
  This would be a good thing for everyone involved.

It seems that that might be a reasonable use case for the new Widgets 
Embedding spec [1]:

Widgets Embedding: a mechanism to allow embedding of packaged 
applications within other Web content, such as referencing via the HTML 
object element. This is a new deliverable for the WebApps WG.

Congratulations to you and your family!
