So now developers can install apps that run in the background without users knowing? Can't this open up a big can of spam (I mean worms)?
What prevention of misuse will be a part of this "feature"?

Thanks for the information. I can see some usefulness, but what happens when a large number of apps are running headless. It will impact performance and unless there is a UI component to show what is headless, then there is the ability to abuse the OS performance and if consumers just do a click though (which most do from what I have seen), then you risk headless bots running in the background and doing things without users knowledge.
What I see are non headless apps that can run as services. Non headless meaning there is at least an icon running on the active frame window so users can see what is running in the background as they are flowing through.
A pure no UI app is fraught with risks and I would have second doubts about my feelings that the BB10 platform is secure if this was implemented.

I like the certificate idea. In the video, he talks about background services and how every developer wanted to do it and it did impact performance on the phone. I can see that the same would apply. If headless apps are not handled well for security and something on the consumer side happens, then it will impact the platform on both sides.
