I think the team's focus right now is on the core snap delivery
mechanisms, security, and performance. We're splitting out the kernel
from the system image, for example, to enable people to use the kernel
of their choice. We've got on the roadmap the ability for a device
vendor to certify updates before they are applied to their devices, but
that will only come along for 16.04 LTS. The store will also support
private snaps in that timeframe.
