If all the classic sources says 'do this, because'...and guys in the know (who can evidence these skills) say 'yeah, do that, because'....maybe I'll save myself some time not reinventing the wheel
If the wheel is square then maybe some reinventing is called for despite what all the venerable masters have to say about the matter.

Some may say 'yeah, that is one way to do it but here is a much better way' and out comes the round wheel and then only those from the preservation society prefer the square wheel 'just because that is the tradition'.

It really comes down to exactly what follows 'because ...' and not just because.
