I believe the plan is so someone can choose the specific plugin they need 
and no be forced to bring in all the dependencies or restrictions around 
the plugins they don't need.

Look at the audio and multimedia category gst-plugins* packages. If the 
actual plugin you need is missing, this probably just means that nobody 
has stepped up to package it yet. (It should be easy since there are many 
examples. And I see 0.8 versions available.)
