Interesting, I wouldn't expect such a complaint for a spell checker. ;-)

I would ask the complainer what he would suggest. Then add the opinions 
from others. At the end you should take this into account and decide for 
yourself what the best update frequence is.

As an extra you can write a short note at the extension webpage about 
the reason for your update frequence. Then others know your motivation.
