Talk me out of cutting straps off my Watershed Futa Stowfloat bags

It seems to me that all the 2" straps do is get in the way. I'm even tempted to trim the 1" straps on the side as the bags fit in my kayak best with the two ends of the "zipper" clipped together.

So tell me, do you find any of those straps useful?

You just reminded me that I was considering this last spring on the MFS. It seems like the main thing they do is make it harder to get the bags in and out of the boat. Honestly, with watershed bags they can probably all go and not really affect dryness. I might give it a go this year, although now i remember I was thinking about moving those bags to front (Lg Karma, I have a lot of room up there) and getting something different for the back.
