Russel has basically answered the question for me. Plugins for 
IDEs are indispensable, both beginners and experienced 
programmers appreciate the simplicity of IDEs and plugins. A good 
asset would be a plugin for Android Studio that compiles and 
packages your D library automatically.

Apart from that, your vision document is sound because it focuses 
on practical things that programmers would encounter in their 
everyday work life.
