That was my thinking as well. I checked earlier, and there definitely is a
feature tag for iOS. (It's the only tag specified in plugin.xml, and it's
the only required change, according to the docs). I don't think plugin add
/ plugin remove should be manipulating config.xml in the platforms
directories -- that should be the job of `cordova prepare`.
