Uncanny Automator do automation from inside WordPress and can integrate mainly with plugins installed and do a very useful automation processes.
It will be very good to integrate with it directly to do all sort of automations.
I know you Planned an "Automations" feature but kindly consider a native integrations with "Uncanny Automator", also consider "WP Fusion". Both of them do automation from within WordPress CP but "WP Fusion" tend to lean towards "Marketing Automation" like CRMs and such.
