XF 1.4 Batch Update - Remove Thread Prefixes

Not seeing a way to remove a set prefix, is there a way using batch update threads without deleting the prefix entirely?

There's a workaround:
  • Create a new prefix, give it any name.
  • Use Batch Update Threads and change the desired threads to have your new prefix.
  • Delete the new prefix.
The deletion of the prefix correctly updates the threads that currently have that prefix.

Yeah, I deleted the prefix we had in place and just recreated, same amount of steps I think. Maybe a suggestion is appropriate to add a "none" to the prefix list when doing a batch update, I know there would be more behind that but would be handy.
