This is true.
But we do prefer self-managing solutions than human managed solutions.
The way it is designed now, we do not need human managed and
synchronized registry - it is created on-the-fly by clients.
As experience shows, we're better in developing than managing. ;-)

The client shouldn't allow loading two plugins that want to register the
same ext. This will force plugin authors to resolve the conflict. :-)
