[wix-users] Prerequisite bootstrapper application with /norestart option gets stuck in an infinite installation loop

We have a BA installing .Net 4.6.2 as a prerequisite.
When we pass the /norestart flag to the BA and a prereq package requires restart (.Net in this case),
The BA gets stuck in an infinite loop of restarting the BA and trying to reinstall the prereqs which return RestartRequired (3010) to the BA.

I also saw there is an issue open here (1-year-old): https://github.com/wixtoolset/issues/issues/5286.

Has anyone encountered this as well?
Is there any plan to solve it or a known workaround?
