Yes I agree with that.

I still don't see the point in changing the meaning of 'default' group and breaking
ABI if you don't need to?

As far as I can tell if you swap the meaning of 'default' and 'maunal-rts'
groups you get all the benefits of this series whilst also maintaining backwards
compatbility with older DT's.
