answering for myself only: not yet (lack of knowledge/experience)

I'll be reading your links.

be careful of using terms "A4" vs "A5". Most peeps here I think regard 
"A5" as "where we introduce backwards-incompatible changes to 
avalon-framework". As such, the idea is to keep avalon-framework stable 
(and I think everyone agrees for that on logkit as well, but it's not 
been discussed), while slowly putting other stuff in a maintaince mode 
and work on "Avalon Container V".

I know the rest of the world has trouble making the distinction, but we 
many times do.
