WordPress Plugins/Themes' data should be moved to its own database.

    As the title says, many plugins/themes write many datas inside the wordpress DB all scattered around.

    But when the plugin gets removed, all those data are still inside the wordpress database still intact and makes garbage pile up.

    Its so awful seeing those meta data inside options, postmeta, etc

    Also, those plugins and themes should some general rules when placing meta datas inside, such as

    wp_plugins_pluginname
    option_name: version
    option_name: param-1
    option_name: param-2
    option_name: param-n

    wp_themes_themename
    option_name: version
    option_name: param-1
    option_name: param-2
    option_name: param-n

    wp_plugins_pluginname_version
    option_name: param-1
    option_name: param-2
    option_name: param-n

    wp_themes_themename_version
    option_name: param-1
    option_name: param-2
    option_name: param-n

  2. Sadly this would be unenforceable, making it a rule that would have no positive end result.
