Restart Manager behavior with windows installer

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
With Windows installer 4.0 and Restart Manager, would it be safe to assume that "Restart Manager" would take care of shutting down applications and hence there is no need for any sort of custom actions to handle shutdown of processes holding files, meant to be updated?

Are there any exceptions where "Restart Manager" might not shut down applications? Ofcourse, i understand that when a policy such as DisableAutomaticApplicationShutdown is enforced, Restart Manager is disabled.

Does the process to be shutdown have to satisfy some criteria to be able to be shutdown by Restart Manager?

I am running my msi packages silently.

What do i infer if a msi package requests for a reboot, even if "Restart Manager" is enabled?

Any response would be very much appreciated.
