I don't see the difference here. In fact, if the user adds the verve
plugin to the panel, then he/she usually expects to use it, and he/she
has indeed control over this action. Same when removing the verve
plugin. It's a controlled action, so the software should not stand in
the way by expecting the user to fire up a terminal and kill a daemon
the user should never knew about.
