The sliding spline becomes the heaviest part of the driveshaft and it's a fair bit of extra weight compared to a universal joint and associated parts of a normal fitment.

This weight is then bouncing up and down, with impact loads adding to the stresses. This is all feeding those loads onto the smallest bearing in the whole assembly, the front pinion bearing.

I just cannot see their logic in making this claim.
