Comment (by Ipstenu):

 > I can print there any message I want with version as long as it match
 the Semver rule, and Semver allows to name the release.

 Oh it's worse than that. It doesn't require it to match the semver
 pattern. I could put in a version of "Otto-Sucks" if I wanted, and it'd
 show up. The system doesn't force SemVer.

 If you wanted to open up a ticket to propose something like this, go for

 You may want to read https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3192 first for
 what was done with checksums and zips.

 > admin dashboard image icon checksum

 Those aren't included in the plugin as installed. Remember the assets
 folder is separate :) And not all plugins have them.

 The only ONE file in all plugins is the readme. But that could still be
 100% the same, so probably the only reliable source would be the main
 plugin file.
