Mmm, what about having an abstract plugin for user managment
(BaseUserManager for example)
that would group all user managment events.

IUserRemoverPlugin, IUserAdderPlugin, etc.., then make plugins like
ZODBUserManager uses it,

This would be enough for third-party code to get notified when a user
is removed,  imho
(which is a common need)
