And that's what gSSO was specifically designed to do differently. 
Everybody can access the API, but access control is on the data itself 
and how it can be used...

So also any third party application can store data there, but the data 
doesn't get mixed.

There can also be controlled groups of applications & data, like "Google 
family" or "Facebook family" of apps. So for example gmail and picasa 
could share data. And Facebook and Facebook Messenger could share data. 
But Google apps cannot access Facebook apps' data and vice versa.
