I do not know about Eclipse that much but from my point of view there is a big difference between Eclipse and Netbeans. Eclipse is an IDE where you have to install plugins after installation of Eclipse to make yourself productive, whereas Netbeans provides complete working IDE in single package (with the possibility to include/exclude some modules), although the option for installing extra modules is available too. So unless Eclipse external modules are installed with the IDE, it makes no sense to apply the same logic for Eclipse, as the way Eclipse modules are distributed is quite different from how Netbeans does it.
