FWIW: Personally I see content bundles fading out over the short term,  
and being replaced by activities that are basically a minimal browser  
Sugar widget. There would be a minimal template with little more than  
the sugar toolbar, journal and some sharing hooks. Content authors  
could then just copy in their html et al, have the chance to tweak the  
sugar tool UI for their needs, customise the icon, and become a first  
class Sugar object in the UI.

There are several such templates that will help simplify life for  
content providers, others are for swf and perhaps pdf (I have some  
plans to create that template – no intention to overlap with read's
