A couple Docker releases ago (20.10.6), they had the following [packaging note](
> Provide the [Docker Scan CLI]( plugin on Linux amd64 via a `docker-scan-plugin` package as a recommended dependency for the `docker-ce-cli` package [docker/docker-ce-packaging#537](

It would be great if the Arch package followed this recommendation :)
This task depends upon

We don't have such a recommendation mechanism in Arch Linux. We only have optional dependencies.
We could add a package named docker-scan-plugin (or better docker-plugin-scan) to the optdepends but there is no such package in the Arch Linux repositories.
So, until someone is interested in maintaining the scan plugin in the official repositories, I'll not add it.
