We are shipting in the metaphisical field of centralised vs. distributed

What you are asking for is certainly doable for a device meant to run
few well known applications, like a phone.

On a tablet it seems cleaner to just broadcast the plugged/unplugged
event and let the apps deal with it by themselves.

You are proposing something similar to screen timeout on a laptop, that
can be set separately depending on presence of external power.
