I completely agree with you but from a **practical** point of view it is not
likely to change in the short term (and maybe not at all)!

And it is definitely a BUG in sbdmock if it is not following the
instructions included in the documentation of doing a manual rootstrap
installation.  Whether we agree with it or not, the documentation includes
instructions for what has to be done after installing the rootstrap.  Of
course, it should be an option set in the conf file so that it is only
done for the broken SDKs and can be turned off if it is ever fixed in later
