I mean to propose a requirement for any new collaboration system that is
recommended to all sugar developers be that it support collaboration
between a python paint application and a Javascript paint application.

And therefore the system that meets that requirement is the one used by
sugarizer today.

An anti-design approach where no system is recommended and each activity
developer can figure out their own system seems counter to the aims of a
cohesive and consistent learning platform in which collaboration is
promoted as a top tier feature :)
