"Dynamic" maps?

For KZAK, we're working on a small script that fetches the current SIGMETs and creates a new XML map depicting applicable SIGMETs; the idea being that a controller working that airspace would run the script before launching vatSys.

We've got it working as described, but one issue is that SIGMETs might expire during a controller's session. A few questions:

  1. Am I right that maps are loaded only at startup, so any changes to the XML while vatSys is running would have no effect? This seems to be the case from my testing.
  2. Is there any way to edit the maps via the plugin interface? I looked through the code of the example plugins I could find but they seemed limited customizing data labels and other scope elements, not the base maps.
