I could see doing that on bench rifles especially since contrete is rough on brass. Mine is for the field so I want full ejection strength. I've been catching brass for years when I don't need to manipulate the bolt fast. So it stays clean for the most part. I still clean the brass and usually wipe/ remove any carbon on the brass. Just how I've done it for as long as I've loaded.I pull the entire spring when fireforming/ on bench rifles. Nothing to do with how the case forms, but I really don't want my cases getting dinged up on concrete or dropped in the mud if possible to avoid. Means no cleaning before I load them again. Sinclair's makes a good kit for tearing down Remington style bolts, no more ejectors shooting across the room and hiding in a corner:

I've been to Remington's amorer's class twice so I just free hand it. Nice tools though.Both ways work, I like full power ejection when I need it too.
The poing was that Sinclair's kit comes with the tool that holds the ejector plunger in, then you use a small punch to knock out the roll pin, and the spring and plunger slide out. I can swap the spring in and out in about 30 seconds, it's not a big to pull and replace. So all the way through load development I keep the spring out so I don't have to catch brass, then put it back in when I need it.
I think it works on Savages also, might have to disassemble the bolt to take the head out though.
