This was (to me anyway) one of the most interesting aspects and offered the ability to add functionality during the lifetime of the application (something we're looking to offer). Admittedly there is a need to resolve missing assemblies (plus security aspects), but maybe some form of 'service tracking' (similar to the OSGi service tracking) could have been offered...
