I've added the comment, but I think we should keep the alias until we have a way to warn people they use deprecated config aliases.

I agree with @lothiraldan that there's no pressing need to remove aliases, and we should have a mechanism to work before we do this for sure.

This seems like exactly one of the reasons the config registration system was built in the first place -- to permanently (or semi-permanently at least) forward old configs to new ones, to allow smooth config upgrade paths.

I'll queue this as-is but I think we should not necessarily drop this in the future.
