Some more thoughts:

All plugins, on Extend at least, are GPL. Knowing this, you can:
- fork any plugin to meet your needs (this includes adopting a plugin that
isn't updated anymore). If a plugin is really needed by many people, surely
one of them will find time to update it.
- make a base plugin and use it as an API (all that is needed is the
functionality to automatically install it when needed). If it is any good,
other plugin authors will use it - why work more?

Basically, optional modules = extensible plugins
