    Description

      1.4.4.
      scenario :
      let's say that a host has item net.if.out[eth0,], but a template that is linked against - net.if.out[eth0,bytes].

      changing the template item to net.if.out[eth0,] does not update the item as usual, instead it deletes the original item and updates the linked item.

      in this case, if the item attached to the host is holding historical data, data loss happens.

      as it could be that in other cases linked item contains more useful data, items should be updated or deleted unconditionally. maybe a choice to the user should be presented, allowing to choose which item gains priority (and maybe also showing some context information, like amount of data collected for each item).
