I think keeping the two separate is easier for maintenance.  Otherwise
there will be too much for me to take care of.

In theory, we can have an indeterminate number of Denote extensions:
some small, some large.  How useful those are depends on the user's
preferences and requirements.  Setting a precedent where we keep those
decoupled from the "core" will help us avoid uncertainty.

That granted, I am happy to discuss all extension-related issues in the
Denote mailing list.  This includes development topics, announcements of
new versions, general questions...

All the best,
