Extending the ESRI API

I have an application for which I want to publish out a REST API.  The application heavily uses Arc* and I was wondering how to approach the problem. 

In particular, should I try to add to the ESRI REST API or publish my own independent API out?

What I have is more of a toolkit so having the ESRI APIs available to my users is of high value.  This might contrast with an application which is more focused.

If I want to extend the ESRI API then how do I go about doing so?
