This should work out easily with the unified Plugin_Name and Plugin 
concept of 

Plugin_Name.declare and related operations manage a name space of plugins 
for commands, with semantic completion etc.  The operations around 
Plugin_Name.filter allow a command to restrict the use of plugins 

(A potential source of user confusion is the unchecked combination of all 
plugins with all commands in the name space, i.e. the semantic completion 
may offer a plugin for a command that is not known to it.  On the other 
hand, commands may be built on top of each other, and I did not want to 
add further complexity for some inheritance system of plugins.)
