Only that it seems wholly unnecessary.

What exactly is the issue here? Your plugin shouldn't do anything of
consequence merely from being included. Quite honestly, NO plugin
should do anything of consequence from merely being included.

Take your "on load" stuff and move it inside a function that's hooked
to plugins_loaded instead, so it'll run that stuff after the normal
load process. plugins_loaded doesn't get triggered on the uninstall,
so you'll be safe there.
