Which databases and versions did you test it against?

It seems reasonable to do that right now. It's not like people are making 
new catalogs based on the standard demo all the time these days. Even if 
they were, any new catalog should be tested so if this broke anything it 
wouldn't be the end of the world.

The main thing is that it's not the default for old catalogs when someone 
upgrades, which you covered.
