Hello Francois,

I also read about this configuration space for the first time. Usually 
one uses plugin.tx_myext_whatever to have a configuration passed to a 

But of course you could use the config.tx_myext_whatever space to have 
some kind of configuration template and then copy it to one or more 
instances of your plugins like:

plugin.tx_myext_pi1 < config.tx_myext_tmpl
plugin.tx_myext_pi1 = USER
plugin.tx_myext_pi2 < config.tx_myext_tmpl
plugin.tx_myext_pi2 = USER_INT

I do not know if this makes any sense, as you could use any arbitrary 
TypoScript path like lib.myPlugin, but if this is in the documentation I 
   would like to know who introduced this.

If no references can be found in the core (I did not have a look) I 
guess it could get removed from the documentation
