Should I put a brake on a fluted 16" barrel?

That's the way my Shorty AK's set up, and the way I plan to set up my next rifle: Cav-15 lower with Bushmaster A3 CAR upper (14.5" fluted barrel with permanently installed Mini-Y comp).  It trims the weight a little bit and (supposedly) makes the barrel stiffer and improve heat dissipation.

Why not? What's your reservations?

I went with a Bushy 14.5" fluted H-bar with mini-y comp...why? It will shoot better when hot, without resorting to a complicated, expensive, delicate free-float handguard system.
