still got my om, but anyway ...
i think what it means is the following:
while booting into NAND you are accessing the area which is to be flashed  
-- thus flashing while in NAND will remove the ground under your feet.
when in NOR every area possibly to be flashed is guaranteed to be free of  
any other access than the flash utility.
sink of it like sawing off a branch while sitting on a tree -- where would  
you like to sit?
