Rename sites in multisite cluster?

Explorer

I currently have a multisite index cluster With two sites: site1 and site2. I wish to rename those sites to e.g. 0A and 0B. When having edited the servers.conf files (both under the [general]-stanza and under the [clustering]-stanza: available_sites) and replaced the site names with new ones, Splunk will not start due to "Error = Invalid site id: 0A". When changing the site names back to site1 and 2, everything works fine.

Is there any way to name the cluster sites something other than site1 and site2?

1 1/2 years and some splunk versions later, did splunk change the supported values?
We like to use our own naming.

Thanks for any feedback.
