It can get unset when editing a persistent service to be
non-persistent, so you would still have to include it in a change
request that doesn't want to unset it. Since it's only one flag
though, it didn't seem too bad to me.
An alternative (also, in case of more flags in the future) would be to
put flags into a nested attribute and if this is not supplied from
userspace during an edit operation, the flags will be left untouched.
