Better possibilities for API

Currently, the only way third party software can interact with the game is by looking at the log files, which give a lot of info, but it is non-interactive and very limited.
Proposal: Share more data about the game, for example, the Universal Cartographics data, which players have had to duplicate into eddb, edsm, etc - meaning these sites don't even have all the explored systems, only those which players graciously shared through third-party software. The same goes for market data although that one might make more sense to keep as is.
For more clientside applications, it would also be useful to have some more control over simple parts of the game, like showing a message on the INFO panel, or for things like VoiceAttack, even some rudimentary control of ships
