the Registry currently has support for uploading binary plugins, so those

It's a wee bit more complicated. Think of e.g. security concerns.
Sure, you can sit down and analyze the code of every submitted plugin,
but this solution is not scalable, and a scalable solution (as in
"automated check for exploits") is likely to be expensive.

But this is not a new problem. If you at the moment download anything from
the registry and install it, it could destroy your system. This should not
stop us from improving it.
