So is this *not* going to replace the "products" karma that an
application author already gets?


If so, can we change the discussion *now* to use the word like
"vitality" or something (the word karma should be reserved for things
which affects a user's karma)?

If not, is this going to be used in *addition* to the current products
karma, or instead of?
