I think we can commit to that (the /v1 prefix)

At some point we'll remove the "1 web framework per app" limitation.

It's more that "promoted" is our standard quick starts, where as everything else is part of the community.  I'm a bit worried about giving those full visibility by default, especially because they may have security holes, be flawed or buggy, or simply not work.  I'm not opposed to showing them, just that I don't think they'll necessarily reflect well on us.
