That's spelled out pretty clearly in the blog post:

They'll definitely be featured for folks.
> And could some of these canonical plugins offer functionality that is only of use to other plugin authors (i.e. a library of routines) instead of all of them being only with end-user functionality?
A library useful to many plugins should probably be in core, since
that's what core is for.
> How will these canonical plugins be decided upon?
Developer and user interest.
> Will existing ones be elevated, or will they be all new projects?
Probably a mix of both. If an existing author wants to make their plugin
canonical they'll be a set of standards they can work toward.
