What I've written above is from the user point of view.

binary packages are (britney has to consider every binary package
independently, which is stressing memory consumption etc.).

If the plugins and the core tarball are always released together, you
can include those two tarballs into one debian source package (the two
tarballs and unpack it while build:), which will not change the debian
binary packages/package relations.
If not, you have to go through NEW anyway, so you don't gain anything
with it doing it now already, except that you have suboptimal packages now.
