Surely for that reason alone (combined with the DB_UINQUE_NAME info for ADR output) keeping these parameters the same would make supportability musch easier  

Have seen at least one site where the names are all different and coming into the environment afresh was a major headache where you see datafiles for Database X, processes for Instance Y and ADR files for Z. Try to produce a site report and transition into managed service for that lot.
