I like this idea.
I have two other ones as well.

1) It would be nice to have a more advanced apps structure with a 
package list.
-- Users could choose an app via an 'app-store', and it will download 
and install it self.
-- Individual apps can be updated via the 'app-store'.
-- Users can upload their own apps to their owncloud instance (this can 
open a lot of security issues).

2) Better urls, i.e. have a routing structure for urls.
-- get rid of the .php extension for urls
-- register php functions or files with urls so that not every php file 
is accessible from the web.

Idea 1) would open up a lot of possibilities and cut back on the feature 
creep of the owncloud core.
