Look at the do_race() function from the race-body patch on the
contrib site. Its main reason for existing is to support
polymorphing between races while getting the correct wear slots for
the new race, but could easily be extended to scale height, weight,
attributes and so forth to a new value. Point being it should not be
necessary to disconnect a player when changing the details of their
selected race. It could all be re-applied instantly, on-the-fly.
