discover will throw up one of those error notifications at the bottom about the id not being found which disappears ever so swiftly, coupled with bug 391754 you could even miss it entirely.
instead I think what would be handy is loading an error page (like an app page, albeit for displaying grave errors; kinda like the ones in firefox/chrome) which displays persistent error information.
"Could not find application 'org.foobar'. It may be that it is simply not available for your Distribution. Please contact your distribution for more information."
and have distros provide some url you can link to for contact about this, or perhaps better yet, use /etc/os-release's SUPPORT_URL.

Other than that, agreed.
