What if, instead of a study to just "correctly understand the security
that Electron can offer" today, security minded developers of Signal,
Wire, Cryptocat tell which features are needed, what setups should be
possible, and what shouldn't be allowed. And, on this list we can say
what Electron has, what is lacking, what muon  has, and what Servo
guys should make, and what should be avoided.
I'd suggest first item for this wish list: Anonymous application update.
There are guides for Electron, but I haven't seen any about putting
Electron's app network comms over Tor, and having such anonymous
connection for app's updates.
