I am trying to change the URL params for a controller I have written. I have successfully done this through the corresponding _config.php:

Director::addRules(50, array(
								MyCustom_Controller::URLSegment . '//$Action1/$Input1/$Action2/$Input2/$Action3/$Input3/$Action4/$Input4' => 'MyCustom_Controller'

However when I dump $this->URLParams I see that the default URL param scheme of '//$Action/$ID/$Type' is still there in addition to my custom rule:


  'Action1' => string 'sweetaction' (length=7)
  'Input1' => string 'asdf' (length=4)
  'Action2' => string '1234' (length=4)
  'Input2' => string 'nil' (length=3)
  'Action3' => string '0987' (length=4)
  'Input3' => string 'zxcv' (length=4)
  'Action4' => null
  'Input4' => null
  'Action' => string 'sweetaction' (length=7)
  'ID' => string 'asdf' (length=4)
  'OtherID' => string '1234' (length=4)

Its not a huge deal, but I'm just trying to understand why it is being appended instead of replaced?
