Bug description:
  Add-ons are not installable from GNOME Software. This is due to 
appstream-glib incorrectly filtering them out.

  [Test Case]
  1. Open GNOME Software on Files app (gnome-software 
  2. Browse add-ons

  Expected result:
  Can install/remove add-ons

  Observed result:
  No add-ons are shown (entire section is missing)

  [Regression Potential]
  By enabling add-ons there is a small risk of a new code-path being enabled 
that could expose a bug. This feature has been fixed in upstream git and 
Yakkety for some time so this risk seems low.
