If we do not do it now, then doing it later will be a real pain because the db content would have to be deduplicated for a proper migration.

However, giving more thinking to that, I'm not even sure we should do this de-duplication.
The reason is that with the deduplication, when an API user reads an object that had been created earlier, what he will get for the route_target fields will be different from what he will have specified initially.

I am not sure that the possible confusion coming from this is worth the very minor optimisation in the DB fields.
