Actually, plugins have a dedicated 32KB memory area so that's not a problem.

The reason you can't switch from a plugin back to rockbox without closing the plugin is purely a design issue: That's not how they are designed to work. It could be done, if we ever find it worthwile. But it would require a lot of extra code in both Rockbox and the plugins.
