Not really, whole point of the service is to abstract the user from
specifics of backend implementation. So for any feature there is a common
API, not specific to any implementation.

There probably could be some exception to this guide line that lays in the
area of admin API, but that's yet to be discussed.

I may say that core team has rejected 'vendor extensions' idea due to
potential non-uniform user API experience. That becomes even worse with
flavors introduced, because users don't know what vendor is backing up the
service they have created.
