The new WordPress theme submission requirements will want common shortcodes to be placed into plugins rather than themes. I guess it seems useful then to discuss what would be best in a common shortcode plugin for all (or most) theme creators. Are there any existing solutions that are popular? Are there any which support Bootstrap 3?

Yes, I’ve looked through the WordPress plugins database myself. But if Envato’s goal is to increase data portability between themes, it makes sense to talk about what ThemeForest authors want themselves. Which solutions do you think could act as the basis for a common shortcodes plugin? What requirements are important to you (Bootstrap 2/3, jQueryUI support, any other useful UI frameworks)? Would it be better to seek a mega-plugin or to create a series of plugins for each functionality, with a common integration architecture and usage interface?

(And yes, I’m new here. I’m working on my first theme and would like to do it right.)
