We've already asked the chinese to change the bookshelf to provide the possibility of adding the new plugins. Right now we stuck with .fb2.zip workaround because the supported file formats and the appropriate plugins are hardcoded in the proprietary bookshelf & viewer.
The FBReader plugin is implemented the same way as Coolreader, as a plugin for the proprietary viewer application. It will be loaded when you try to open .fb2 or .fb2.zip file.
I've just added the fbreader files into /usr/share directory and exchanged the /usr/lib/libfb2.so with a link to /home/lib/libfb2.so, so it is possible to hotswap the fb2 plugin without flashing the new firmware.
