It seems more likely that Google is going to do the premium Android Silver line in collaboration with major OEMs, with Google dictating the specifications of the devices to be made under the Silver banner. kind of like multiple Nexus devices per year instead of just one from a chosen manufacturer.
It's kind of like Google Play editions too, because the price point will be much higher, but it's unsure yet if they'll be carrier-free as they are supposedly going to be appearing in carrier stores. How carriers will feel about minimal bloat opportunities is another question.
It seems to me like it will be somewhere between an expansion of the Nexus line (and increased price point) or a more Google controlled Google Play edition, where Google largely designs the device as well.
