VSIX should support the user's msbuild extensions path as an install root

VSIX allows files to be installed into a few directories outside the Visual Studio extensions directory, but they're all under the Visual Studio install directory, and requires admin access to install.

If the VSIX supports installing files to the user MSBuild extensions path (in the use profile directory), then admin access would not be required to install the VSIX, and the extension could support auto-updating.
