Most of what's written describes the whole behavior of an all-snap
system. That comes from the origin of snaps inside Ubuntu Core. Now
snaps as a standalone idea are spreading, I think the most useful thing
we could create for developers is a detailed description of a single
snap and the behavior of it. Snapcraft teaches you that indirectly, but
I think a direct documentation of the snap is what's called for.
