Re: options in Plot


{#, Attributes[#]} & /@ {Plot, ListPlot}

{{Plot, {HoldAll, Protected, ReadProtected}}, {ListPlot, {Protected,
   ReadProtected}}}

Plot has the attribute HoldAll. As always you need to use Evaluate to
override the HoldAll.

opts = {Frame -> True, GridLines -> {{1}, {1}}};

Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}, Evaluate[opts]]
