I am planning a new webapp. I want to use an SE instance to power the community feature of the new webapp.

Since all SE sites must pass through the Area51 process, I would like to know if I could enable my webapp users to seed the area51 version of the SE instance?

Ultimately, I want to leverage the awesome SO product to be my webapp's community (e.g. community.mywebapp.com).

What does the community think?

You can't access Area51 through the API.
Area51 does not show up in the associated accounts query
Why I think Area51 needs an API.

And even if you could, there is no write access in the current API version.
