I think the opposite is true too: I think some users don't appreciate
that "zsh" and "oh-my-zsh" are not the same thing. (I.e., think the
choice is between bash and oh-my-zsh.)
Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that the zsh default
setup is rather minimal: no cwd in PS1, no history tracking, etc..
(Actually, with StartupFiles/zshrc, I can't get even «rsync --<TAB>» to
work, even though it calls compinit.)
And features like the _match completer aren't easily discoverable...
even if $framework sets them, that wouldn't have the user know he can

So one of the things a "plugin infrastructure" could do is standardise
a documentation format, so if you had N plugins installed, each plugin
could register the styles and parameters it cares about, and then you
could look them up, or enumerate them, in a unified way.
Vim has something similar: the ':help' command indexes the core's
documentation, all plugins' documentations, and a list of
locally-installed plugins (:h local-additions).

Another one is prezto.
