[Portland] What exactly does DAPI cover?

After downloading DAPI I kind of got the feeling that it could be used
only for a few specific tasks like opening a browser, getting an address
book entry etc. But I mean, typically an app needs to do a whole lot more
than that?

Won't ISVs still have to choose either KDE/QT or Gnome/GTK for
development? Or will DAPI later wrap _all_ GUI widgets somehow so that an
application can be compiled into both "native KDE" and "native Gnome" or,
like, ehm.. how does this DAPI thing work?
