Is the default main company special ?

Suppose I have renamed the main company for a solution. Some time after the deploy, a sister company has been founded.

The default access rules define access for the objects of the parent and children of the logged user's company .

In order to maintain the default access rules, one can clearly state that I need a parent company for them.  That way some objects can be monitored from the users of the parent company. I see two ways so far:

  1. The easiest way is obviously create a new company for the parent, and update the parent_id of the existent ones to its "Id". But that will make my old "main company" as a child, with the admin user there...

    but I have always had the feeling that the amin user and the main company are something special in the default config / behaviour.

  2. Let the current  company (the original "main company") as the new "main company", create a new child company and move  and move all the objects to it.

Which way is less error prone, from the functional perspective?
