Not blow up, but obfuscate.  Imagine a user (or support person) who
is unaware that ephemeral databases are in use and resorts to pulling
out hair, muttering profanity, and sticking pins in their "Mr. Phil
Voodoo Doll" (tm) [batteries sold separately] when their "show
configuration" output doesn't correlate to their true operational
state.   The warning is more about "yes, I'm aware" than about
voiding warranties, explosions, or sharks with lasers.
