My point in this is that Stack info is being maintained either way (within
the Filter), which Simon already alluded to.

In the 'more clean' defaulted example you have *exactly* the same problem.
If you copy givenName and familyName into another document it can easily be

<!-- paste here -->
It is clean but the same problem exists, I don't know if re-identifying the
element is the right solution.
