-0 for a UIXP but +1 for some new XClass(es) since UIXP should be reserved for 
skins, i.e. templates (vm files). Note that on this topic we need to conclude 
about http://markmail.org/message/ewk4rq7p2mtqehto (nobody replied to the last 
thread item I wrote :)). I don’t know what we agree about officially and what 
is still left to debate/decide. We need another thread for this.

Now we need to more precisely define the XClasses.


* One XClass for inserting “boxes” in the “Main Features” section, see 
 For example the Templates Application could/should insert itself instead of 
being hardcoded.
* Another XClass for the videos page to contribute a new video definition, see 
* One XClass for adding a new macro on 
* One XClass for adding a new application on 

Note: There could be a single XClass with a “type” xproperty to say where the 
content is contributed to or they could be different if we want more
