This is exactly what I am working on.  You're welcome to take a look
at the recent paper I've submitted to EuroSys 2009:

  
http://walfield.org/papers/2009-walfield-viengoos-a-framework-for-stakeholder-directed-resource-allocation.pdf

This paper covers how to provide availability information to
application to allow them to more intelligently and thus more
aggressively adapt.

I'm working on a second paper on how applications can provide
information to the resource manager, in particular, relative
priorities and discardability information.  A rough draft of that
paper can be found here:

My thesis (still a work in progress) goes into more detail:
