I think you'll find that plugins are in general less flexible than the core OJS codebase, as they're often contributed to us by someone trying to solve a particular need that doesn't necessarily apply to the community at large. I'll pass your feedback along to the plugin developer, and if you have developer time to contribute, we'd be happy to accept a patch for inclusion.
