Hum, I wonder whether the PTS is the right place where to fix
that. Ideally, my preferred solution would be a way, release manager
side, that automatically cleans up the YAML file when transitions are

This is not (only :-)) because it would you that do the work rather
then us :-), but rather because I see the PTS as the consumer of the
YAML file. There can be, theoretically, other consumers and basically
you are implicitly proposing that all consumers implement the "cleanup
upon migration" logics.

If you have strong reasons for not implementing the cleanup your side,
I have no objection fixing the PTS the way you proposed. Let me know.
