Some simple plugins can be completely documented in a single line of description, however, I have found others that require more information. I have loaded a number of plugins, activated them and had either no idea how to use or, in some cases, what purpose it served.

We could make mandatory an html page, place it on the webapp and in a (standardized
please) help button of the plugin. Of course a dev could make an empty page, but at
least he'll be aware he's doing wrong.
All the best.
