The neck was designed for the horn just like it is. Even if changing the mass at the mouthpiece end changed the sound, that doesn't mean it would be better to remove it. It could just as well be worse.

It is wrong to think that more mass means reduced responsiveness. The mouthpiece mass itself can vary a lot. What about a metal mouthpiece? It has more mass than a HR one, but that doesn't make it less responsive, does it?.

Now, if you add a semi-precious stone to the neck, that's a whole different story. ;)
