Sure ;)

So plug-ins should duplicate the palette file parser, scan all direcrories
where gimp looks for palette files to find the palette is looking for, and
then restart gimp to take notice of the changed files?

Not programmatically.

No. It's just insensible to duplicate code and make it a hassle for
developers when the code already exists within the gimp. Especially since
there is no way to make gimp _find_ your palette file after you have
written it.

That's fine. This just means that palettes cannot be managed via plug-ins,
just as was said before.
