Exactly, I am talking about a form of standard, similar to the way databroker plugins work. So that some for of library is created so that when an author creates an addon he would simply build his addon with the concept that it would use this library for handleing his profile information.
I understand that authors would have to work together for this. It has happened many times in WoW (ACE library and libDataBroker come to mind).
My thought is that if this gets built this early in the game and done well that authors of new addons would embrace the lib.
Sorry for my naivety as I have said before I am not a dev, just a dwarf with some ideas...but I really appreciate the dev insight that you provide.
