I'm somewhat for the idea but it seems too early to start thinking how this would be implemented.
Maybe it turns out there's only 2-5 plugins that would need this.

One thing that could help is an <experimental></experimental> section in plugin.xml
to try different approaches. 
That part could break at any time, if there's eventually consensus on the feature and syntax,
it gets merged in plugin.xml
