That's a nice thought, but I've not heard of such (forward-looking store
policy), beyond what's in the TCS that is. It's just I assume someone
suddenly noticed the "illegal" X11 symbols - and/or misread their usage.
 The issue of plugins is something that should be looked at, I don't
know if the tools have the sophistication to work this out.

There's a tizen-compliance mailing list, which is a place actually
encouraged to make suggestions of this (#2) nature :)  "How do you add
another framework" is a question of broader scope.

It's my unofficial understanding that store policy is "accept tizen
compliant applications".  In implementation there may be differences
which would be good to know about in these still early days of the
program. Figuring out if a plugin is a problem or not has plauged people
looking at app compatibility problems for many years now.
