I know this is only applicable to me.
On guidelines, you should add the section of getting around problems that is difficult to code around and making it easiest on users. For example, in my popcorn fractal plugin, I pointed that users can resort to gmic-qt Popcorn Fractal as gmic-qt Popcorn Fractal actually use parallel processing. I have yet to receive an answer on how to parallelize Codelab Popcorn Fractal, and made a thread on it.
The guide was meant as a set of guideline to publishing. What you're explaining is coding. We have the Plugin Developers Section for that.
