The thing is: We could easily add the meta data to any content the 
plugin renders - just like we do for other content elements.

The problem is that Plugin does not inherit from Template. So if we add 
the processor to the Template TS object, it won't have an effect on 
plugins (but on "static" parts like menues).

But I think we can add the processor to *TYPO3.Neos:Template* and 
*TYPO3.Neos:Plugin* and then skip if the current node is not of type 

I still find it hard to differentiate between NodeTypes and TS objects 
and I think *TYPO3.Neos:Template* vs *TYPO3.TypoScript:Template* is 
quite confusing - but that's a different topic (I think).
