I'm curious to why you want to have this restriction in place? The only 
thing I can come up with is if you have a proprietary reason. If you 
don't then I am _really_ curious because I don't see why restricting a 
user to do what ever he/she wants is of any benefit (assuming that we 
are talking about plugins now)?
