"backlisting" during the user profile migration is possible.
Have a look at the corresponding Setup.xcu [1] and search for 
"ExcludedExtensions". Here already the Presentation Minimizer and the 
Presenter Screen are "blacklisted".
When you have a fresh AOO 4.0.0 installation you can edit 
<InstallationFolder>/share/registry/main.xcd and manipulate the entries. 
Then you can try out which entry is needed for the Setup.xcu to be added 
for AOO 4.0.1


Best regards, Oliver.
