Note there would either have to be a special case where no subscribed
topics and "Do you want to receive messages that do not match any
topic filter? = No" means receive all messages, or change it to a
3-way option - "only subscribed topics", "subscribed topics + no
topic" or "all messages" - and migrate the setting appropriately.
