Is there a plugin API or SDK available anywhere? I seem to remember that this used to be case.

At the moment there is no publicly available DVBLink SDK.
What do you need it for?

That depends on what the API (which doesn't exist) would give access to.
there are a number of things that could be improved, IMHO
- starting with live PMT updates (that would be pretty much internal, I doubt any api would reveal that)
- opportunistic EPG updates (maybe internal, maybe API accessible)
- decryption plugins (this already exists, but undocumented/unused, maybe HW assisted)
- epg enrichment (already somehow exists via xmltv)
to name a few.

on the client side I could imagine adding something that wol's the server if it isn't available...

I'm not saying I could do all of that myself, but giving that kind of restricted access might invite others that could.
