Is this based on something implemented in Caja?  The general goals
seem good, but it seems a bit abstract and hard to see how it will
turn out in practice.  Perhaps some concrete examples will help.  For
example:

- startup.com wants to make an application with an API from ebay.com,
using these modules...
- json.org publishes a package for a JSON validator at json.org/json.zip ...
- the app is "secure" because ...
- administrators can independently upgrade their packages because ...

At least I think that's the kind of thing you're getting at.
