I've been looking at one of the recorded JavaOne videos that talks about new features in Neon. It was presented by Wayne Beaton and Gunnar Wagenknecht. At one point Gunnar mentions the ability to somehow associate a MarketPlace entry with particular file associations, so that if as a user running Eclipse without your plugin, if they try to open a file with that extension, it would try to make the user aware of the MarketPlace entry for the plugin associated with that file extension.

Is there any additional information I could get about this feature?

I've managed to resolve this. I don't have the link for the documentation for this right now, but the interim requirement is to simply add a new "tag" to the marketplace entry in the form of "fileExtension_<fileextension>". So, for instance, if your plugin is for working with ".gork" files, you simply add a tag to the entry named "fileExtension_gork", and when the user tries to open a file in Eclipse with that extension (and they don't already have your plugin or another similar plugin installed that already handles those files), it will tell the user that there are existing Marketplace entries for that file type, and it will optionally show them and allow the user to install them from the Marketplace dialog.
