The core of NSIS currently handles the UI in such a strict way that turning it into an application programming platform requires massive changes to the core. The wizard page based system only loads plug-ins in the context of a page, and not persistent through the entire application. My NSIS Debugger plug-in creates a new thread where it handles the message queue of a separate window, but that is a different thing. You can pull off many hacks to take over the wizard dialog of NSIS (my recently posted wansis plug-in demonstrates this) but ultimately in the end it is an installer and nothing else.
