Automatic plugin validation leads to unexpected behaviour

Description

Developers of complex plugins get confused about the automatic plugin validation, that takes places by the editor when a plugin is pulled into the workspace. For long running plugins it's not useful, as it may block the GUI (or lead to CPU-intensive calculations in background thread). From inside the plugin you can't decide whether the validation is running or the plugin is executed normally, therefore you can't prevent unncessary longer runs.

I propose to use unit tests or some external (half-)automatic testing method instead of the current validation feature.
