Qt Creator usually do not use plugins for small additions, rather merge that
functionality into the major plugins, especially if the addition is considered
generally useful. So it depends a bit on what exactly you want to highlight,
but doing it in the normal C++ support is very likely the way to go.

This mailing list (and #qt-creator on FreeNode IRC outside Central
European sleeping time) is usually the best place to  discuss this stuff.
Not many of the developers read the Forum.
