That's exactly the idea.

The json metadata baked into the plugin should have all necessary information, 
in the right form (so also the list properties Milian started this thread 
about) and be translatable .

This ultimately allows us to get rid of installing desktop files, and plugins 
just become one single file (the .so file), instead of an .so file and a 
.desktop file in two different places.

A translation expert / i18n dude should be able to answer this, I know too 
little about translations.
