Currently there is no agreement on what exactly the 
rules/policy/algorithm will be to determine which objects or tags will 
survive the transition and as a consequence, all visualizations, stats 
and other tools have their own method to determine what the status of a 
specific object is. So while I might support the notion that an untagged 
node is not more than a piece of white paper with contents that can be 
erased and rewritten without invoking IPR inheritance, at least some 
people don't agree.

I do believe I can say so much that the absence of a clear policy is 
recognized as an issue and at least I have pressed to get it nailed down 
(not in every detail) asap.

That said, I believe P2 now has a tool that will completly replace a 
node with a new one at the same coordinates which is a bit of a fix for 
your specific issue.
