Is it possible to do the upgrade while preserving the mixed-location-ness?
We decided to prevent folks from creating new mixed-location-ness[1] in 1.7,
but I can't recall now if that was because our schema and logic flow
demanded WC-wide uniformity, or if we just wanted to tighten up some
looseness that didn't seem to make practical sense.
