There's an option in Gnome Shell buried in the gsettings that allows
you to ignore this check and just run them. I've got that on and it
worked successfully with all the extensions I run[1] (I need to go and
inform the extension upstreams of that fact).

One option we could look into would be for GNOME to set this option on
by default for a month or so to give extension authors time to catch
up while not breaking any user extension that works unmodified.
