Old bundle naming (v1.7.8) in newly exported profile XML (v1.7.9)?

I've created a "git develop branch" instance twice:

  1. Updating from v1.7.8 installation to v1.7.9 code.
  2. New v1.7.9 installation with profile XML import from v1.7.8.

Something interesting I've noticed (if I'm not mistaken) is that the "old" XML has different bundle naming than the new one. Makes sense since the names seem to have been changed (looks nicer, btw).
But what puzzles me is that the terms in an exported profile XML differ, depending whether the setup was a fresh import, or a DB-update:

  • v1.7.9, but DB-update: old terms.
  • v1.7.9, but fresh import: new terms.

Random examples:

  • ca_attribute_set_item_description = ca_set_items.set_item_description
  • ca_attribute_tour_description = ca_tours.tour_description

Is this on purpose?
I would assume that each CA version exports the XML in its current flavor, regardless where the data came from?
