Definitely as to both.

Sanctioning possibly multiple libraries (with non-clashing names) in a 
category shoud be less nasty than picking just one to include and 
distribute with the library.  The criteria for sanction should be similar 
to that for inclusion -- such as maturity and commitment -- but without 
having to be 'the best'.

As a user, I think I would want to be able to plug things in.
