I'm sure this PLOT extension is useful. 

My point is that complexity should be moved to Org Babel, if possible,
not into affiliated keywords. IOW, it would be nice if gnuplot source
code blocks were as easy to use as your extension.

It already might be as simple, or there may be some work to do. I'd
appreciate some enlightenment on the topic. For example, could you show
what code your extension generates with the table above?
