That sounds sensible to me.

That sounds like my opinion.  More specifically pre-existing *Debian* 

It seems my opinion is not shared by those developing and including 
Plinth (it is packaged and in Debian but its package description if not 
its actual code discourage any use outside of a FreedomBox context).

Also, if I am not mistaken, it seems to me that recent addition to 
Plinth is support for a packaging format of its own - making not only 
its central hib but also addon functionality specific to FreedomBox.
