As others have said before me in this thread, the word count is best be 
displayed in the status bar.

But your question is valid for other features.
The answer is, yes, of course.   Making the sidebar extensible with more 
decks and panels was one of the design goals.  You can do that with 
extensions in any language that is supported by the extension manager.  
There will be Wiki page that describes the details.  The already 
existing way to do that will be supported also.
