Yes, my (personal) opinion is that it would be more worthwhile to work 
on live updating of menus than on a blunt "please restart" dialog. 
However, the former is likely a far more difficult task than the latter.

Extensions bring along menu and toolbar elements via configuration .xcu 
files that specify changes to the configuration's 
/org.openoffice.Office.Addons/AddonUI tree.  Code can listen on changes 
to this part of the configuration, and then react to them.

The code reading this configuration data when a newly opened document 
window's menu is created is AddonsOptions_Impl::ReadOfficeMenuBarSet in 
framework/source/fwe/classes/addonsoptions.cxx.  However, that code does 
not currently listen on changes to the configuration data.
