You're free to disable it, go into
~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions and delete the directory to tidy
it up.

Maybe this even a bit more simplistic, but I'm planning on removing
the "Install" label, only exposing an "Enable" button, which will
download if needed. This has the advantage that you can make the above
workflow happen if you want to re-enable it.
