I think that we need to wait for a restart too.

That does increase the cost of making the switch, which isn't without
consequence, but I think that - again - it's the only option that
stands a good chance of not breaking stuff.  I really don't know how
ICE (assuming trickle) might behave in reaction to a release of a new
set of candidates at arbitrary points.  Early on: sure, fine.  After
nomination is done, I really don't think it's going to produce a
good/useful outcome in all cases.  Not without a lot of work, anyway.
