I cannot speak to the technical underpinnings of what Plex has done for their "store" however badly that might be misnamed and I've not YET used it (just got my first MAC) however from an end-user standpoint it appears to be pretty slick. Usage may prove that wrong and it might prove difficult to code for but so far it looks like many are jumping on building for it.
So far as XBMC is concerned I've pounded my head against the wall a few times trying to get various plug-ins to work and managed to get the new Apple Trailer plug-in working at least although I preferred the older one. I haven't tried the SVN plug-in for pulling other plug-ins lately but last I did I had to set it up manually on my machine and it never seemed to work - I guess I need to try again! In any case unless it has improved it was somewhat frustrating from an end-user perspective last I looked.

Well, when I tried it it did exactly what SVN repo installer did. No more, no less.
Closed source software is the enemy, all the plex guys do is take something people have spent endless time producing, for free. and make a few additions close source, and they can, by the flick of a switch, force users to pay for the goddamn thing if they want...
(Yeah I know they have made additions open aswell, which we ofc are very gratefull for)
