    I don't think I made my point clearly enough.  I don't have a problem with having the
ability to add enrichments, indexing definitions, etc in an extension.  
    My point is that the defaults we provide should make as few assumptions about the environment
as possible. 
     For example, when I install the Bro parser extension from this PR, it is going to perform
GeoIP and malicious IP lookups.  That assumes that the environment in which I am installing
this has the Geo database setup correctly and a malicious IP table setup in HBase.  
    Are those fair assumptions to make?  It seems to me we should make as few assumptions
as possible so this can "just work" for the greatest number of users out there.  I would default
to no enrichments, for example.
