refer to greasemonkey/tampermonkey for simplification
Regarding to development process and framework of Office Addin JS, there are lots of unnecessary steps which make it complicated. Is it possible that Office Dev team refer to the greasemonkey/tampermonkey which extend browser functionality easily.

tampermonkey is my favorite. I will appreciate if office addin can refer to it. It can be simplified for Office Addin development.
1. it is so weird to add addin catalog into trustcenter in such weird way. Can we just simply add manifest XML file (URL or local file path) in Office Addin dialog?
2. Why Office Addin JS must depends on a web server to host the H5 files? Can it support zip file or local folder?
the Pros comparing to tampermonkey is:
1. Office Addin fully support H5(HTML/JS/CSS), but tampermonkey only support JS code and draw UI by JS code.
