AppData and AppStream are focussed on applications primarily, but we
do currently have some experimental support for icons and input
sources. The format of those in the metadata might change a bit, so
I've not pushed that upstream just yet. I have however had a lot of
help from the Ibus people.

I don't know if that's in scope. I think it would be a distraction to
start enumerating all possible things there now, and we should really
keep the focus on apps and a few tightly-specified other add-on types.
