This is a little weird.
project.xml contains dependencies for code, for compiling, testing and
running (maybe with distinction among them in future).
Adding plugins to dependencies is artifical.
How about something like
maven plugin:install foo 

This is done once and it is independent from any project exactly the way 
core plugins are installed now.
