[Cordova] Update to new version 7.0 release with Meteor 1.5.x release #8686
As of Meteor 188.8.131.52 we are using Cordova 6.4.0 with Cordova Android v6.1.1 and Cordova iOS v4.4.0. It would also be great to to update to Cordova Crosswalk 2.3.0, which should be the last official release of Crosswalk.
These changes should be more palatable in a major release like the 1.5 release . Also, this new feature should help with managing the issue of breaking hot code push #8581 for those that don't want to re-submit their apps.

Looks like there is a Cordova 7.0.1 release.
Also, with Cordova 7 it looks like there are likely some breaking changes, including moving in the direction of using npm and package.json to specify dependencies instead of config.xml, that it probably makes sense to "bite the bullet" and implement issue 8195 to make it possible to install Cordova directly from NPM.
Unfortunately I don't have time to work on a PR, but I'd be willing to contribute to a bounty for someone to do this work. For non-react-native mobile development I think this unbundling of Cordova is really a critical feature going forward.
To help provide a more clear separation between feature requests and bugs, and to help clean up the feature request backlog, Meteor feature requests are now being managed under the https://github.com/meteor/meteor-feature-requests repository.
This feature request will be closed here, but anyone interested in migrating this feature request to the new repository (to make sure it stays active), can click here to start the feature request migration process. This manual migration process is intended to help identify which of the older feature requests are still considered to be of value to the community. Thanks!
