   In addition,the "factory-reset" RPC might also be used
   to trigger some other restoring and resetting tasks such as files
   cleanup, restarting the node or some of the software processes,
   setting some security data/passwords to the default value, removing
   logs, or removing any temporary data (from datastore or elsewhere),

It seems that this should all be part of this draft.  An operation that
wipes a device for decommission is useful.  Whether it is a home or
commercial device.
