You should also notify firstname.lastname@example.org so that the
central CellServDB records can be updated. IIRC, at least windows
clients use the name after the '#' for address lookups -- it is not
just a comment field.
(You could, of course, make the corresponding change by hand for
machines that you manage, too.)
