Are there any risks in leaving this enabled all the time on our production Jira instance? My confidence in getting the code right first time is low.

Will there be a performance impact on Jira?

From the documentation I have reviewed it looks like you only need to use this if you want to make changes to the template without restarting JIRA.  I could be wrong but that was my understanding.  If that is the case I would recommend making the changes in a test/dev environment first and that will allow you to restart JIRA as needed to verify the changes work as expected and then you can make the changes in Production once you're confident the changes work as expected.
