GPL covers the code and derivative works. The definition of derivative works (check copyright law) doesn't include plugins.

Hmm. Not so sure. Sec 2(b) suggests that plugins too, if distributed as part
of the product, would be under GPL:

b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
    parties under the terms of this License.
