I've always carried the lead line at the very least (stacked, in a sling, on my haul loop). The consequences of the rope end or a loop blowing around the corner and getting stuck can be pretty extreme. You're only carrying extra weight for the first half of the pitch anyway and there's essentially no weight on the anchor side so it's really not that big of a deal. The haul line, on the other hand, I usually stack on the bags. If it gets stuck you can always take it off, leave it on a piece mid-pitch and come back for it when you get around to it.
