Well, to install a new card you have to reboot too, so it doesn't seem so strange to reboot to a new kernel at the same time. :)
Now for USB stuff and network protocols, DKMS hotpluggable drivers certainly seem more appropriate. I have installed 3 different versions of the PPTP module via DKMS without rebooting.
