I put the cork out over the ring to eliminate the spit/condensation reservoir that is created when the end of the cork doesn't go all the way out to the end of the neck. It makes a big difference (for me).
While I admit that it is a topic that seldom comes up in discussion, every tech who has referred to the thing at the end of the neck in conversation with me has called it "the ring." As a result, I am happy to continue calling it that.
