Glad you think it might be useful. I'm thinking that with a bit of work, this can serve as a replacement to the UI Spec in CollectionSpace. 

I'm not really sure about exact timelines yet--we definitely need some time for the community to digest this API, get to know it, and refine it as needed.

In the meantime, I don't see any reason why you can't link against Engage code in CollectionSpace. There are so many areas of overlap between these two projects, anyway.
