This method is currently living in our View storage class, it doesn't really belong there. The storage class doesn't need to care about plugin managers or anything like that. This is only used in Views UI, specifically in the list controller.
Let's move it there. I have currently just commented out the (random) test assertion in ViewStorageTest for this. Not sure we have a test specifically for the listing controller?
