Nothing should be voting in check in grenade that requires a plugin.

I'm fine with a few things in check nv if they are doing something out
of the ordinary that we think needs to be kept on top of. I also expect
that ironic folks are going to watch for those failures, and say, with
-1/+1 CR, when they are legit and when it was off the rails. A non
voting job that doesn't have domain experts validating the content
regularly with CR means it gets ignored if it fails a bunch.
