Our usage model is not the one assumed by the CMS we are using, SDL Trisoft. We need a way to migrate piecemeal to the CMS, and still maintain our local authoring environment until we see that all works the way it should with the CMS.
That's the reason we need to replace the .soc files.
This is something necessary for the short term, and I'm just trying to make my life and the lives of my fellow writers easier by providing this macro.
I guess SDL managed to find a way to refresh the GUI after copying over their version of the dita.soc and dita_specialized.soc files, but if you say there isn't a way, then I won't waste anymore time on this.
