System add-ons are currently served by Balrog and installed and managed by the AddonManager.

In the future, we want to serve system add-ons from Normandy server, and have some portion of the management of the system add-ons done by Normandy client.

Here "system add-on" refers to non-optional parts of Firefox that happen to be packaged as XPIs. Normandy will install them, and only uninstall them again given explicit incompatibility or instruction from Normandy server.

Similar to how we have preference rollout and rollback actions in Normandy, we will be implementing addon rollout and rollback options to handle the case where we need to permanently ship addons to users. They will not necessarily be system addons but will all likely be privileged extensions.
