Recent Samba versions (later 4.1) should have the ability to remove
names they added that are no longer needed, so it should work.

I still wouldn't rename the default site, but instead move computers to
a new site.  That allegedly doesn't work also, but I'm not sure what the
issue is there, or if it is still an issue.
