I totally agree - in my case I was hosting a subdomain of a domain that
the company wasn't renewing the registration on and I really didn't want
to be hosting a domain we didn't own anymore.  Plus like I said it was
small and still in testing (the decision to not renew the domain (and
migrate the process to the other one) was made after the initial setup was
completed with the original domain) I figured the worst case scenario was
to delete the whole thing and start from scratch :)
