Yep, I added a Ticket to our system to remind me to do this.
Also - one more question along these lines... when an Elem is coarsened I know that the children hang out for a little while - but then are possibly "pruned". Do we have the ability to impact this situation? i.e. I would like the children to hang out (as JUST_COARSENED or INACTIVE or something) until I specifically call a function to clean them up. The reason: I'm need to recover some data from the children before they go away completely.
