OK, I agree this seems reasonable enough. 

Consider: If your record update affects test scripts, the 'test'
that's run to make sure the tests are good is testing the /new/ version
of your test, not trying to somehow test your new test against an
existing test. 

Thus, I think it could be considered consistent to update the
functionality as you suggest.  

I'll file a bug report.
