Speaking for the core developers of GIMP, I can only say that we don't
have the resources to do that. That is the main reason such an update
system doesn't exist yet. It has been proposed and discussed
frequently over the past years but so far noone has spent the time to
actually sit down and design such a system, let alone implement it.
If someone wants to do that, that would be very much appreciated. But
please don't count on the core developers to test, verify and maintain
each and every plug-in that is submitted to it.

Looking at registry.gimp.org see what works and what doesn't will
probably help in designing a next generation plug-in registry.
