Yeah, would be nice if any such a change would give you a choice to reset
session immediately after commit or wait for manual intervention by operator
(where the latter would be pre-selected).  

But that's a well-known protocol limitation, where Capabilities as defined
by RFCRFC3392 can be exchanged only in optional parameters field at the end
of a BGP-4 OPEN msg, that can't be worked around unless both speakers
support RFC5492 which obsoletes RFC3392.
