Cool; brainstorming is good. The bit about how extension modules are 
already clearly referenced in the config model got me thinking a bit 
about other possible similar patterns. Basically any config attribute 
whose value is a module name could be annotated by the attribute author 
as such and that could perhaps drive module propagation around the domain.

But my vague instinct is there needs to be a distinction of some sort 
between stuff that's controlled by provisioning software (like 
layers/add-ons) vs end user stuff where we are being asked to help the 
user provision their own stuff.
