You are mish-mashing way too many ideas into a big messy ball here for

However, there is an extension a UI can use to get a pointer to a plugin
instance, which is mostly what you are talking about:
I do not recommend its use for any situation except where it is
absolutely necessary. Its role is either:
1) Temporary kludge used for necessary plugin <=> UI communication
2) A way to get direct access to waveform data for visualisation or
whatever, with graceful degradation where this is not possible
Use 1 is a big red flag that says something is missing and/or broken.
Use 2 is all good.
