[APD] cutting crypt roots

I am really curious on Jerry Smith instructions to cut the roots of  crypts.
If the roots are healthy why? IMHO the plant is going to immediately go  into 
root production mode to offset the loss and not put out new leaf growth as  
I have been getting crypts from lowcaster shipped from the far East for 3  
years and i have never cut the roots.
Rinse clean yes trim any rotted or unhealthy looking yes but not white firm  
roots. The ones that have not done well hae been the ones with the smallest 
root  growth and seemed to be harvested off of a rhizome.
any crypt farmers want educate me i have my pith helmet on, fire away
