Something I liked very much in Joomla (ok, the only thing...) is a general Token Replace API. In DNN you can use Token Replace for System Variables and , if supported, your own tokens in your own module. But not system-wide!
Lets make an example: Think about a token placed in the standard Text/Html and looking like [weathermodule:NewYork]. At the time the page is rendered, the tokanizer identifies this token as a token from your module (or something else) and hits your method which goes to weather.com, gets the current condition and changes the display to "30°C, Sunny".
This is a simple example, but think about [cart:T-Shirt red with DNN Logo;20.00$] which renders your text/html to a full featured article page for your webshop!
