That is an interesting example for the kind of stuff a coordination team
   should deal with. Yes there are different fields to cover. Common
database models are the one thing, interface definitions are a second,
configuration standards a third, etc.

That means that extension coordination needs to become something like a
meta coordinating patform of different subprojects.

We could start with a collection of stuff people think it should be
coordinated and then structure all into different areas that each can be
done by a small team.

We still need a good name, to start such a collection on some wiki page.

Any proposals?
