This approach makes the presumption that all surfaces should map all plugins, and that all plugin parameters should be included in any given map.

This is definitely not the case, this project is all about customization, a user might not even want to map all plugins to all surfaces or even all parameters of a given plugin, etc.

Once again you seem to be leaning toward a generic/autoload approach, the polar opposite of what this project is trying to accomplish.
