Spike/implement CSE element to render web-items


In order to be able to migrate existing web-item locations to CSE we need to render existing web-items just like they used to - and as soon as possible, meaning, before on-load is triggered.
We can then migrate existing web-item locations to be rendered via CSE while providing the better handling of extensions through CSE for any new extensions being developed for said web-item location.
This will further allow us to migrate these locations to pure CSE locations in the future

To make this possible some “cleanup” in the refapp is needed, as it currently relies on an outdated version of CSE. you can follow for updates.

further some minor bugs were found in CSE itself:

An issue with overeager changing the order of execution on registered extensions was found, and a potential solution is opened via PR:


further some first spikes on how an example migrated web-item location to CSE could look like:

As the current solutions have mostly been developed “in vitro” the examples being introduced in above PR will likely show missing bits and pieces in the current implementation.
