From http://www.ausairpower.net/TE-Sidewinder-94.html talking about AIM-9E Missle's upgrades:


The most significant design change was the adoption of a cooling for the PbS detector element, the USAF opting for Peltier thermoelectric cooling. This arrangement has the advantage of unlimited cooling time on the launch rail, subject only to the availability of electrical power. The seeker improvements expanded the weapon's acquisition envelope and increased its P[k], although not dramatically. Over 5,000 rounds were rebuilt from AIM-9Bs.

I found this on http://www.ausairpower.net/TE-Sidewinder-94.html, it has more info on other Sidewinders, there are also 1 or 2 more websites wich claim that AIM-9E can be cooled for unlimited amounts of time, wich would make the in-game aim-9Es warming up and shutdown unrealistic to the missle.
My suggestion is to atleast increase the maximum time that missles can stay powered on for.

also as a side note, AIM-9J is also apperantly capable of all-aspect lock, although I didn't find any concrete evidence for it so I am going to not suggest that aswell unless I find some info.
