This is already possible: see
http://monodevelop.com/Architecture_Overview. In fact the IDE itself
is an Addin on top of the lower layers of MonoDevelop :-)
I'm sure there are things that we could move "downwards" to be useful
to other applications, e.g. the property grid widget, but it's hard to
know what's needed until we have developers using the platform.
