You are correct I think. We only tested it using manual updates. Meanwhile, I
found out how to use the update policy of the update manager which solves the
url problems (using a local proxy).
So please forget about the url issues and keep them in as required. Having the
feature.xml and plugin files jarred in future updates will be enough :-)
