It looks really awesome, can't wait to try it out.

I have some concerns about more platforms and the terminology. 
Android should be considered as the platform,  maybe Cordova needs a new flag, -engine?

e.g. cli perspective

> cordova prepare android -engine crosswalk           #uses Crosswalk
> cordova prepare android -engine ChromeView     #uses ChromeView bundled jar

That could solve some issues with windows 8:

> cordova prepare windows8 -engine crosswalk    #uses Crosswalk?

Putting this idea out there, might make the maintenance easier.
Problem for me is terminology of crosswalk as a platform, it's more like an engine that sits
on top of the OS.
