@EarlButterworth the work we’re doing goes beyond Python libraries, though these low-level libraries support the higher-level work we’re doing on webapps to support the use of Data Packages for the average user. For instance, Good Tables (http://goodtables.okfnlabs.org/) is a web service that allows for the validation of data against a JSON Table Schema. You’re probably correct that we need a distinct JSON Table Schema generator, though we have a gone some way towards building similar tooling for the next version of OpenSpending (https://discuss.okfn.org/t/openspending-next-status-update/2249).
Re: the CKAN extension, does the following meet your needs: https://github.com/ckan/ckanext-datapackager
Finally, we imagine Data Packages to remain “packaged” (i.e. within their respective folders) on disk. We are, however, working on how to define Data Package identifiers (including DOI) in this particular issue: dataprotocols/dataprotocols#237
