Whenever we can't decide what is the correct decision,

Only all those together makes sense from my point of view:

Have a simple [Apply] button but when the service does not support
a really safe "reload" method (i.e. that neither makes the service
temporaryly unavailability nor resets existing connections),
then ask the user for confirmation if he wants to disrupt the
currently running service to apply the new settings right now.

That's a good point but it's actually something completely different.

It's a different use case, e.g., something like Samba service to which clients might be connected "right now" and copying files. If we talk about DNS, DHCP or NTP Server, then nobody cares.

As far as I understand it this means the `apply_settings` method
whould have to be able to ask the user if needed.

If there is a risk, those Yast modules already ask the admin whether to restart that service or skip it.
