If you don't need to install new or control old xpi plugins,
you can get rid of the "PlugInstall" interface by using xpi0
instead of the big xpi extension.
prev << "feature/xpi"
next >> "action/ plugins"

You cannot modify the README.plugins file, but anyhow any ideas or suggestion should as usually get filed on BugReports, UserSuggestions or even better the README.plugins.Discussion.
