FWIW, This is basically what I've been asking for for years. Making the
services API a first class citizen. Simplifying the frontend to do only TV
stuff (eg. dropping all the plugins) and make it use only the services API.
This makes the frontend basically a POC to show off what the backend can do
and then let 3rd party frontends flourish (which probably means assisting
in their development somewhat).
