Comment (by rekkanoryo):

 If plugin options were to be visually isolated, that's not something our
 current API would allow overriding (and I can't see any valid reason to
 allow overriding anyway).  I don't see a problem with changing the account
 window so that there is a fourth tab called "Plugin Options" with
 individual sections for each plugin that adds options to accomplish the
 separation but others might.  It could also be tricky to get it just

 As for my consistency argument, go look at AIM, ICQ, and XMPP as examples.
 The connection security/SSL options for ''all'' of those protocols are on
 the Advanced tab, and they're just fine where they are.
