In a word, yes.

When I reset the preferences list, the old servers hang around.  Restarting 
the service is an "inconvenience".

A "-reset", or "-clear" option would do fine on the "fs setserverprefs".

Btw, for Ken's response...

We set the server preferences per building to minimize network traffic.  I 
believe it helps to know which servers your client will be trying to hit 
first for their data.  To each his own I suppose.
