thanks for the further explanations, confirms my guesses. But it looks 
like the AWS console knows about the type of instance and does not allow 
start on non-ebs instances). Even if those instances are still visible 
while they get removed/destroyed because you stoppen them.
My concern was (since Michal fixed it) that I got start reported as 
available which is not true. Doing start on that instance led to an 
error. I could have applied a fix in the tooling (is it a EC2 cloud? -> 
then ignore available start and available destroy), but this really 
sounds like a dirty hack to me.
