 If I had to guess, I'd say this is behaving as expected. If you rename a
 field, the field_id stays the same so as long as the type of field doesn't
 change, the value should stay the same. If every time you changed the name
 of a field, it blasted out all of your current users' data, that could be
 a catastrophic event that would be impossible to revert.

 In this case, you'd be better off to create a new field, and delete the
 old one entirely; since that's what it sounds like you're expecting to

 I'd rather error on the side of caution and leave it as it is for now. I'm
 marking this as 'wontfix' because I think the current setup is the safest
 option for most users. Feel free to keep discussion going here or reopen
 the ticket if there's a compelling argument for changing this behavior.
