Well, I don't think that one would to that just for fun... I figure that 
  who will try a procedure like that is enough experienced and/or wants 
to risk with his own device.

I'm simply saying that the method should be well documented in public 
(since it's not the first time that occurs) underlining that it's only a 
very dangerous "tip" and that the Om team doesn't suggest it, then 
everyone can decide if following it.

PS: BTW I hope I won't use it since I've ordered also some extra an 
battery and I've some compatible ones near me; I just wanted to express 
my idea...
