Why not to adda  second line submenu devoted only to plugins? This way
the second level menu for WP function wont' get messed up by to many
plugins options and it will be clear at firt look what are the menu
entry  related to WP and what the ones related to plugins.

This solution allow plugins put theyr menu under the right section
without cluttering the WP menu allowing in future adding more option
without subtracting space to plugins entries.
