hpux and sunos hard class

I'm trying to set up cfengine on a network of solaris/sparc, hp-ux 11.0 on
PA-RISC1.1, hp-ux 11.0 on PA-RISC2.0, and hp-ux 11i on PA-RISC2.0.  I'm
also using my home network for testing, and I have solaris x86 there.

So, I'm putting platform-specific variables into files which I import in
cfagent.conf.  For some reason, cfengine doesn't consider solarisx86 to be
solaris, which I find very strange.  So, I just define 'sunos' if the host
is either solaris or solarisx86, but I find this to be a hack.

But HP-UX is even worse.  For some reason, all of the boxes I've tested
this on (11.0 and 11i) set 'hpux10', but not hpux.  I can't figure out
why, but I figured "eh, I'll just set it manually so that it all works
out".  Nope, cfengine considers that a hard class, so it won't let me set

So, I'm either stuck with coming up with a different common way of
describing hp-ux systems without using 'hpux' (and I obviously can't have
the '-'), or I'm stuck with 'hpux10' as my identifier, which just doesn't
make any sense to me.

Has anyone else run into this problem?  If so, how are you dealing with
