"What I would like to See in AppStream, the "Linux App Store"

"First of all the Linux App Store may or may not happen (http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS7312694782.html) however, if it does the following is something I would like to see implemented.

"GNU/Linux Monetary Support:

"Add a donation option tab. This tab could be turned off in preferences, and should be unobtrusive, no asking or reminders to donate. Different options to donate: such as a general donation and specific donation. General donations would be shared with the distribution the user is using, kernel/hardware development, and a general fund for software. General software fund: App Store/Software Management would track the number of times each application is installed. (But not who installs it.) Funds could be appropriated accordingly."
