I see what you’re saying, but it’s not in agreement with how the “manager” client has been designed so far: it will be able to manage arbitrary plugins without requiring them to present metadata or be wrapped in any special container.  Granted, the presence of metadata allows better forms of management, but there will still be some basic plugin management going on whether or not it exists.
