Just for the record, I am not a fan of plugins depending on some
service from a web site -- wordpress.org or otherwise.* (If it's
specific to the plugin -- e.g. Akismet -- fine, but not in a sense
general to all plugins.)
So long as plugins can register interfaces locally, I'm okay with the
site registration being a possibility....
* This is already an issue for me with plugins and the auto-update: My
plugins are not hosted on Extend, and as a result they are not checked
for updates -- but the WP update check implicitly says "there are no
updates for this plugin" by way of complete silence.
