Index.html being rewritten on serve

When using ionic serve, aside from it breaking Often as per this other user’s post:
Ionic 2 RC0 - serve and run screwed up

I am also experiencing my index.html page being rewritten.
Any includes are being wiped out.

Cordova CLI: 6.1.1
Gulp version: CLI version 3.9.0
Gulp local:
Ionic Framework Version: 2.0.0-rc.0
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.0
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.1.0-beta.1
Node Version: v6.3.1

If you want to make edits to index.html you will need to edit the one in src not the one in www

Oh - is this new in RC0?
I’ll assume this is the correct at this point.
