Cutting The Welting?

I just watched a video of a seat cover being installed on a bench seat. The guy doing the installation said to cut the welting down inside the cover in order to make a more "professional and smoother appearance". My question is this : Wouldn't that make the seam weaker? I sent him an email in regards to this and am waiting for an answer.

Yes it could make it weaker, and it really isn't necessary. The welting will sink into the foam of the seat anyway. There are some places it's a good idea to trim the welt down, but to do it for everything is overkill.
