A uniform approach to Plugins / Themes settings

Yesterday in IRC (#WordPress), we had a conversation about rules that would help make plugins and themes easier to use, which in turn would make WordPress easier to use.
There isn't a rule or guideline whether a plugin should make a tab or link under settings or if it even has to do any of the above. We all agreed that all plugins should have a link under settings. If the plugin enhances a different part of the site, the settings page could just tell you where the plugin feature is located.
We also agreed that themes should put features like a static front page under customize like most already do, though I heard Responsive doesn't. I was told it puts static front page under settings. If it is a theme feature, then logically you should be able to at least find a link to where the features are under themes.
Implementing general rules for plugins and themes would make WordPress easier to use. Does anyone else agree?
