Right now the AddonManager code refers to system add-ons in the app location as "SYSTEM_DEFAULTS" and the profile location as "SYSTEM_ADDONS".

It would be clearer to call these "SYSTEM_DEFAULTS" and "SYSTEM_UPDATES".
Right now we have this set:

KEY_APP_SYSTEM_ADDONS
KEY_APP_SYSTEM_DEFAULTS
KEY_APP_SYSTEM_LOCAL
KEY_APP_SYSTEM_SHARE
KEY_APP_SYSTEM_USER

Only the first two are what we call "system add-ons".

So maybe it would be better to change the first two to:

KEY_APP_SYSTEM_ADDONS_UPDATES
KEY_APP_SYSTEM_ADDONS_DEFAULTS
Summary: making naming of system add-on variables consistent with "defaults" and "updates" → naming of system add-on variables should be consistent with "defaults" and "updates"
