I am a fervent supporter of this behaviour.
I think that plugin should be able to come with specific resources (css 
files, xsl style sheets, images...) and these resources should not be 
part of the core.

In my first thought, there was no need of such a property.
The plugin comes with its resources which can be overriden by projects 
with location map fallback mecanism...

I have not think about it yet,
I will come back latter..
