Nice list indeed!
That reloading of the upgraded plugin in fact should be implemented at
the level of PyQGIS support and not directly in the installer. It
requires some internal actions so leaving that task for pythonqgis
library seems to be a better option. I'll look into this and I'll let
you know how to do reloads directly from the installer.
