The team is not that big. I guess if something comes up with something 
shiny that fits into the new framework ideas and code is welcome.

But before you can define an API for the BE you must define how the BE 
works anyway. My favourite is still an MCV framework that uses Smarty 
for the views. But I fear the new team has the same do-it-ourselfitis 
that Kasper had. *
