Why do we need to change the default value then, if we rename the
setting? If we mean to "clean up" all old installations with the new URL
(I doubt that someone has changed it) we can just rename it so the new
one will be in effect as soon as the user upgrades. Or how would you
handle the upgrade? We would need to see if the old value is the "old
default" or if it is some "customized old". Should we handle this?

It does affect all installations I have seen, yes.

Have you placed it there somewhere? I have no access.
