I've asked a question along these lines a few weeks ago:
how much time application developers like etoys and Sophie will have 
between stable APIs and the shipping deadline. To me it looks more and 
more like you're hoping to have stable APIs for -not before- the 
shipping deadline in October...

A general issue with the current thinking about activities and data:

"By now"? So, "By when" is it going to change? And how?

Assuming these photographs are from some picture taking activity, how 
can I reference one or more of them (inside the tar file?) from within 
Sophie so a kid can assemble a document with those images?

There a gazillion of these questions popping up the second one starts 
thinking beyond simple, single task activities.
