Well I see your point, probably should've never been there in the
first place :)  Although I suppose it is good to have some form of
standarization for something no matter how trivial.  Anyway, my
opinion is it seems like unnecessary churn but I do see your point.  I
can modify it in Cinder easy enough and won't complain (too much
more), but I'm also wondering how many *other* things might fall in to
this category.
