load Matlab shortcuts xml file

I have a custom Matlab toolbox which supports customizations in form of Matlab shortcuts. In that context, i have different shortcut versions for different Toolbox releases.
Since it is not possible to handle these customizations "simulink-like" (sl_customization), my solution is to simply exchange the shortcuts.xml file in the matlab prefdir and reload it afterwards. The problem i am stucking with is that reloading of the file needs a new Matlab session (and that is, of course, not acceptable for the people working with the toolbox).
Does somebody know how to load new shortcuts without a Matlab restart or have a different approach for changing shortcuts dynamically within a session?

Use the Shortcut Toolbox by Richie Cotton to either create switchable shortcut categories, or to learn how to use shortcutUtils to switch between shortcut sets.
