In general I agree with your post, I like this kind of application (Miranda, Foobar2000) and it's certainly good and solid application design. Problem with this type of application is that it's quite hard to make it usable (as you have to download a lot of plugins, configure them etc.).
Good compromise is to distribute core for experienced users and then some kind of "power pack" which is preconfigured for most beginners.
