manifests could benifit from a flag for optional usage

The idea would be meta data plugin authors could supply to help reduce complexity of plugins. Stuff that isn't needed to use the plugin on the most basic level, could be flagged as advanced. Think of it like a reduced test case. Whatever is not the bare minimum to make something show, would be advanced.

Example:

      manifest: {
        options: {
          start: {
            elem: "input", type: "text", label: "In"
          },
          end: {
            elem: "input", type: "text", label: "Out"
          },
          text: {
            elem: "input", type: "text", label: "Text"
          },
          target: "plugin-container",
          colour: {
            elem: "input", type: "text", label: "text",
            advanced: true
          }
        }
      }

So, colour is advanced, in that it's not needed to do any basic work. If advanced is false or undefined, it is basic.
