Are you referring to the parameters such as "domain sid" as well?  If so
where will this be stored?  I know I have heard suggestions to have the
trandomly generated and stored in a "don't touch or the world will end"
file.  If this will be the way of the future, there will be a way to
continue using the currently value for domain sid in the new code
hopefully?  Otherwise the dexisting domain will go down the toilet.

This is actually one parameter I kind of like. :-)
