I think it's likely the best solution for the next release. It's the
previous behavior with --fast-boot enabled, so this should not be a
regression for anybody, and for people who need more accurate behavior, they
still can disable fast-boot.

After the release, we could still start experiments with TOS patches or
other hacks.
