Well, being a perpetual beta (development) piece of code I see no point 
for having a specific place where to get add-ons or extensions, neither 
from Debian nor even from Google... they'd break alsmot every day. As I 
see it, plugins and add-ons are focused for the stable version (Chrome).

Something similar happens with Firefox and other Mozilla programs: you 
can get the add-ons and extensions directly from the official site.

Not linux Chromium but the Chromium project itself, I think it's targeted 
to developers more than end users.
