Ugh. No. Don't make a wp-content/plugins/ structure. Please, keep user
submitted content (over the web) in the wp-content/uploads directory,
or a subdirectory off it.

Why? Permissions. People have enough trouble setting permissions as
is, keeping those custom "anybody can write" permissions restricted to
one directory makes it easier to manage.
