The JHotDrawAdapter is currently a special type of tool. Each of JHotDrawAdapter and Tool provide completely different methods for dealing with their portion of a JHotDraw-based ImageJ tool. However, not every JHotDrawAdapter should be a Tool. The SwingGeneralPathTool, for example, should only be a JHotDrawAdapter binding a GeneralPathOverlay to a SwingGeneralPathFigure.

The solution is to split these two logical halves into two separate types of plugins. JHotDrawAdapter should be its own type of ImageJPlugin independent of Tool. The Tool part of the logic should be implemented as a Tool. So each JHotDraw-based ImageJ tool would consist of two classes (a JHotDrawAdapter and a Tool).
