I would also request that if you flip these and make the Unified API the tested ones under the defaults and the defaults are the Classic API that you also prefix the nested folder name with "Preview" and each of the Unified API templates with "Preview".  Having it in the description isn't enough to make sure it gets noticed.

Also I would argue that anything you label as preview is incomplete and should not be part of a stable release channel until you are willing to remove the preview label.  However at least making sure its not default is better than the current state, although not ideal.

changed "tested" to "nested" in previous comment.

I mark this issue as fixed since Unified and Classic separation doesn't exists anymore
