I would prefer a way that let the enduser choose. means: the addons are 
packaged or dynamically downloaded but applied by user choice on startup 
or at least could easily reverted/removed.
We follow this practice with our appliance because some modules are a no 
go for some companies (e.g. googledocs integration) but others like it.

model designer: I like the idea of the module but I won't encourage 
unexperienced users to use it. We had to recover systems where customers 
played with this module because Alfresco isn't designed to change the 
model as the user expects - it too easy to break the whole system. This 
is not the problem of the beCPG model designer but if we expose this 
functionallity to the UI bad things may happen...
