Create a "Generic Embed" extension

Prompted by Embedding third party JS Tracking for my site

In some cases you just need to embed a script on your site. Yes, you could do it via a "Core - Custom Code" action but I also wonder if it warrants a "Generic Embed" extension. If the provider of the script is a small company who will likely never create/maintain an extension, it would be nice to still have an easy way to add the embed code. In this case, you likely don't care about it providing any configuration, rule component types or data elements so a generic embed is probably what you are after.

I suspect Adobe is going to leave this open for someone else to develop- the joy of an open source system is everyone can wait for someone else to build it.
In truth, 33 Sticks was working on making such a thing (similar to our existing pixel loader extension) when we realized it'd probably be better for it to come from a product company, or for folks to build extensions privately for their own org.

Thanks for the thoughts Jenn. This actually seems like a feature that maybe should just be part of the Core extension. Do you find that it's a pretty common need for you?
