Eliminate "recreation" when the CI Type is changed to a sub-type in the same branch

When a CI is rediscovered by a specific discovery job and the CI Type is changed the CreatedBy and the CreateTime attributes are reset.

This behavior is expected when the CI type changes to a different branch (i.e. unix to netdevice).

But why is it appled when the CI type is simply made more precise, using a sub-type of a CI type (i.e. node --> host_node --> unix)?

We think it will make more sense to not touch the CreatedBy and the CreateTime attributes in that situation.

Regards,

Benoit
