I agree except that the 4th partial goes flat only on horns having that tendency prior to reaming. About 40 years ago I worked with a Mr. Draper, the manager of the Edgeware Works of Boosey & Hawkes. He also recommened boring or reaming out the backbore. He claimed its only purpose was to make all registers equally stuffy and conserve the air and lip of weak players.
