Yeah I think it's a fine idea.  Is it really related to IMSManifests? 
Would it be better as it's own plugin?  Or would it even be better as 
part of core forrest.. I'm not sure how much change it would require.

But for our need of documenting plugins, lets go the simple route.  If 
we need to use this feature in the future, we can, but I don't see the 
need now.
