Yeah, you just did "an awful job considering the number of relations
involved" (your words).

Even in the absence of any kind of sandbox, you should not make changes
to a large number of admin relations just to "try something out".

I think the renderer, in this case, is just one of potentially many
examples where a downstream system is adversely affected by your
experimenting on our main database.

I sincerely hope that your example will not be followed by everyone who
has an alternative suggestion about how to tag disputes. It is reckless
and irresponsible.
