In 4.4, the SCC is maintained by the CVO. This means that the ratchet logic of "reconcile-scc" has been lost. Overall this is good (we documented that nothing should change the bootstrap SCC), but practically, anyone who has changed needs to handle the situation before they upgrade and have the resources stomped.
We can make a change to 4.3.z which prevents upgrades (upgradeable=false) on fairly complicated predicates and provide links and help for dealing with the situation *before* it goes bad.
This bug's above PR and title were same as bug 1808602. Dup?
