Alright. That helps. I see and confirm that the mmc gui doesn't
display "root_site" for the webapp appid. This is incorrect. Let
us know if you've already spotted the error in the mmc gui logic
for determining this value. It sounds like it's either not picking
up the default value or overriding it with the first-folder-node
name when it shouldn't. We'll take a look at it.

In light of the problem above, I see why this is important. I'm
not sure it will be as important once that problem has been fixed,
but I think we're in agreement that the gui should allow you to
set values even if they match the inherited value. So, another
item for us to look into.

Another confirmation. I see what you mean. We'll have to look into
this too. I'd like to address each of these for the final 3.3.0
release. I'm not sure if we'll address them in time for the first
