Sublime doesn't actually claim this at all. The only claim I can see on the site is that Sublime has a Python API.
The plugin situation we have right now is fairly simple, ad-hoc, and almost entirely separated from the product itself.
* A handful of developers happen to share some stuff using Subversion.
* I've written a build script that converts the Subversion trunk into sublime-package files.
And that's it. There's no official involvement at all, no official plugin site. No official anything. Just me setting up a free google code repo and a build script, and other people committing code.
Now, something like pypi or firefox's addin site or rubygems would be great, but we're nowhere near that situation.
But we really are wide open to develop things however we like.
