It would be even better if the extracted highlight can be integrated into the calibre highlights (using the calibre highlight structure, start/end cfi)

I think this plugin could be the combination of "annotation plugin" and "power (full-text) search plugin".
First, the plugin would import highlights from device via annotation plugin. The annotation will match calibre book ID and import annotated text.
Then Power search will search the "annotated text" within each book (via book ID).
The results is integrated into calibre highlights/annotation.
