Will there be 3rd party Infocard designs?

I wonder if Microsoft will ignore, inhibit or encourage the creation of 3rd party graphical designs for Infocards?

A card for every hobby.

Given the importance Infocard places on the interface, and the user's presumed reliance on its integrity, is it conceivable that arbitrary images within that interface would somehow enable phishing?

Perhaps an animated GIF that simulates some piece of the Infocard GUI, i.e. a trust dialogue telling the user to ignore all other trust dialogues? Is there an attack here?
