But those statements are meant for the normal case, in which you _want
different_ values in there, right? Not touching on the idea of "refresh".

Perhaps an inquiry should be made to them, asking it being relayed to
their experts on the topic (and not just grabbing some canned statements
from the usual stock of wisdom), for this scenario.
While I do wonder why this topic isn't long, widely known wisdom if it
is a good idea, ... well who knows.
