It helps in setting up and moving about and has allowed me to suspend heaters and fans overhead as a temporary mount. It was a happy accident that have proven time and again to be a great feature. (for what it's worth )

Is it harder to get a foam tonpky bond than wood spar to ply? Probably. I just think it's worth it. Partly no thermal bridging but largely engineering "elegance". My comfort level with all foam core is based on a lot of experience with it in other applications (orchestra shells and portable platforms used in live entertainment). My problem is very little engineering data on less than 1/4" ply so 1/8" ply design is more instinct and guess.
