Here's an idea for you: make the extension advertise a capability to say that it's enabled, and allow the administrator to require this capability. Then, if a user attempts to interact with (or merely push to) the central repository without this extension, they'll get an error.

(Just thinking out loud here; my employer hasn't even adopted Mercurial…)
