That's what would be reasonable.  Not that we should agree to follow all of 
erics personal preferences, but in this case I do strongly support the change. 
 In normal circumstances it should not make a real difference because 
/etc/hosts only contains localhost and the local host adress (OK, performance 
penalty when up and running, if there is no caching in the resolver 
routines...), but the machine will be bootable when there is no network (yet).
