There are no plugins as such for LyX. Anything that's in the code is in
the main codebase. The only exception is the various configuration files
that are text files (layouts, templates, the math autocomplete file,
etc). So kind of thing you are envisaging would just need to be added to
the main code.

I'm curious though what you mean by "generalized text autocompletion".
