I don't want to change that. All I wanted is to share that idea about 
plugin independence from project.
The plugin:install I mentioned can coexist with plugins in 
<dependencies>. It just enables people to focus
on compiling, testing and running project while writing dependencies.

You can add anything missing as system variable.
