I have no idea what Kevin would think but he is still active so shouldn't be hard to find out. If he disapproves it should definitely go.
The main reason in my mind for having a bolt on it was in case someone ripped off the fragile top of the flake and went for a big dive. Well the flake top has already gone. It stuns me that anyone would have put gear at the top of that flake, let alone M9's favourite wire and hook. I've placed some dodgy gear in my time but I never thought that was even an outside chance to hold anything.
