I would like to point out that the GimpDrawable struct in libgimp has a 

   gint32    drawable_id;   /* drawable ID */

so plug-ins still refers to drawables in the core through an ID, even 
though it might be indirectly through a pointer to the libgimp 
GimpDrawable structure.

I agree however that my advice was misleading and stand corrected.
