In my case, it wouldn't make any difference.  My route to the corporate
AFS server goes over a VPN link which is not up all the time.  Even with
dynroot, the system hangs if I accidently try to cd into that part of the
/afs/* tree when the link is down.

I need to control what appears in the CellServDB file - period.

Principle of least surprise suggests that user-modified configuration 
files ought be left alone.

Just my $0.02.
