You should file a JIRA, and let the list know what it is? :D

I was never sure if it was just me being unreasonably literal to presume
that decommission made the node forget its prior state, if I'm honest? It
is nice to hear from other operators that this matches their expectations.
But yes, the current behavior seems to have risks that "forgetting"
doesn't, and I don't understand what benefits (if any) it has.

As a brief aside, this is Yet Another Reason why you probably don't ever
want a Cassandra node to automatically start on boot, or restart. If you
don't know its configuration, it could join a cluster, which might be
Meaningfully Bad in some circumstances.
