Many existing astronomical software packages and tools already exist throughout the user community. Can a proposing investigator propose to utilize one of these, and to simply add on Spitzer-specific capabilities and/or interfaces?

Yes. In general, the SSC adopts the same approach; that is, to utilize existing data analysis packages/tools to the maximum extent possible, and to develop only those unique capabilities required for Spitzer.
