If some one can explain the reason that this rule was created and why it might still be relevant I might change my mind, but until then I'm against it.
it is there to preserve the large cut cook of the pork.
if it is removed, then we've got a pork grilling contest. similar to where chicken is now.
i do realize what's good for the goose is good for the gander and brisket may be parted, so why not pork?
but i think the integrity of cooking a large peice of pork whole must be held together as best as possible.
