Will the user understand this? If I understand this correctly, these
apps will be featured in the "What's New" section of software-center.
While we might feel that there is less responsibility on our side for
maintenance and QA as the apps "aren't a part of Ubuntu," to users
they will actually be presented more prominently than apps that are
part of Ubuntu.
