I like the concept that are core features combined with extensions/plugins

is wanted. And the extenstions/plugins could be developed and maintained
by others who are not part of the dev team.
There is a downside to the extensions/plugins idea. It's who creates them.
I run into this problem all the time with Firefox and Thunderbird. Many
of the extensions and plugins are developed by folks outside of Mozilla.
You find X number of them that allow you to add specific features that
make the program operate the way you like, do what you want, etc.
Then, the developers make changes to the core code, breaking X number of
your extensions and plugins. One or more of those extensions/plugins
were developed by 3rd party individuals who no longer support the
extensions, for whatever reason.
Now, your workflow/habits start to get screwed. Things you used to do,
you can no longer do. Features that used to be easy for you, now become
a pain. You have to find another way to get the same job done. Or, you
can't do it at all. :-(
