Comment (by webdevmattcrom):

 > the consensus was that they did not want to make the submission process
 more difficult than it needs to be. Adding additional fields would add
 onto the submission process.
 -- The consequence of this line of thought is getting replies from the
 plugin authors asking for additional information that could have been
 provided in the users first response. That is much more troublesome than
 taking a little extra time.

 > I think the middle ground would be placeholder text with examples and
 expected information.
 Placeholder text would be a good first step in the right direction, but
 what often happens is that users don't actually replace the placeholder

 > I've also seen plugin authors in the past sticky threads regarding
 submission guidelines/templates.
 We do this -- it means zero, users never read pinned threads.
