It's already the case (not legal to create them after time 0) for NetDevice,
Channel, and Node and I thought that it was the case for Application: all these
objects make up the overall simulation topology for me and I always expected
them to be fully static/constructed before simulation starts. I understand that
it's reasonable and convenient to create applications dynamically but I never
thought that this would be allowed.

I do not really know: I do not know what the impact is going to be on the
