What I'd like, is to be able to simply add an ownCloud account to sync
contacts and calendars, much like the Google account already does. I've
no interest in installing a dedicated ownCloud app.

Note this has been available in GOA for atleast a couple of years now.

I'd also like to add notes syncing to the notes app using ownCloud. I've
already done this in my gnome-shell extension, by retrieving the
credentials from GOA.

I'd like to do the same on the phone, the code is Javascript, so I
should be able to reuse it mostly unchanged.
