I know Dave well enough to know that he wanted this issue resolved as much as anyone but I don't think marketing his involvement is justified.
Involvement for the good of others often goes on deaf ears.
The only thing that needs to be touted is the correction to a dangerous issue by many other people than mentioned in the original post.

Yep, Even riding with the expert / advanced groups I always backed off there. I personally could never get the wall out of my head even when trying suggested things. :eh:

I don't need to back off.
I'm not fast enough for it to cause damage

All depends on your bike, riding style etc.
This is a very subjective question.
