Sandboxing and AppleEvent access-group settings

My app accepts AppleEvents from another app. That other app is now being sandboxed for the Mac App Store, and they are concerned that Apple won’t grant them a temporary exemption that will let them send the AEs to anyone (including my app). I gather that they can restrict the approved AE recipients, and my app should declare approved “access groups” as part of the AppleEvent suite/sdef. I don’t know how to translate this to Xojo. Is this just a .plist setting? Or is something more required. Thanks for any help with this.
