Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 I'd prefer to change it (and maybe shim it if old constants or cache keys
 are found) but I know that's unlikely to be the popular vote.

 * *Very* few people are likely to be using this hidden feature
 * The people that are using it are probably friends of ours and we can
 alert them directly
 * We can alert anyone else via the make blog
 * "primary" is new terminology in our lexicon that conflicts with an
 existing paradigm – anecdotally, and not sarcastically, as much as I enjoy
 being an expert in WordPress's sometimes-goofy naming conventions, tucking
 this mistake under the rug forever is one less corner to get snagged on
 for everyone (myself selfishly included)
