IIRC this flag was usually intended more for doing things like
temporarily overriding an SMTP server or something like that where you
don't want to accidentally end up with some very temporary thing

the SMTP thing being more common with roaming users needing to relay
through different ISPs for whatever reason (usually being overseas).
