This is part of the 430 Cup spec (and other Cup cars including Elise) and obviously provides some rollover protection in the event of flipping the car.

It doesn’t appear to be a part of the 350/410 spec.

To me, it would be quite nice peace of mind (without necessarily knowing all of its structural specification).

Has anyone who tracks their car thought about retro fitting, or is there a view of necessity etc?

It’s item 6 in this DeRoure pic:

Have retro-fitted to a couple of cars converted to race cars. You have to cut some bodywork to do it.

As you say, without knowing the structural specification (I've not checked the material thicknesses vs weight), there is little point, unless you are going to fit some (i.e. A frame) or all of the rest of the roll cage
