Interesting question. I’d say, both. :)

The issue at the starting point is print as quick as possible, so get rid
asap of the uneeded data for this particular proof. The short cut is just
perfect. You remove the data and the print can be done. No processing time.
Just a cross-over, a jump in the circuit.
