EVM Baseline Cost When Moving a Task to Another Calendar Year

If I process a Baseline Change Request (BCR) moving a task’s period of performance from one calendar year to the next, there is a labor rate upper (escalation). My question is "do I maintain the hours and have a baseline cost upper or maintain the baseline cost and reduce my hours"?
I know many will reply that it is a program decision but what is best practice?
I firmly believe that if the task takes 40 hours in 2015, it will still take 40 hours in 2016. I have already taken a significant MR challenge before the original baseline was established. Any and all comments welcomed and appreciated (the more comprehensive, the better 😉). By the way, I know some will want to reply that is a rubber baseline and should not be practiced. But let's assume it is by direction of the PM who is not EV savvy. Thanks again!
