Nick:
I always consider the code as the bare minimum.
Any convenience for the contractor is usually, not always, a deduction to structural integrity.
That said, labor is usually more than material; so other than a framer that does not want to be required to think while on his feet  who benifits ??  You the engineer or the contractor.
How many loads tranfers planes do you want   ??      one or two ??
