Not being a user of the module, it’s hard for me to say that I’m
interested.  But if you find it helpful, and you think others will,
that’s good enough for me.

Is there any way you can write tests for this, either using a dummy
module or using AE but skipping the tests when it is not installed? 
Otherwise I would feel very uncomfortable committing it, even if I can
prove to myself that the code works.
