That is good to know because it deters people from modifying the splines to prevent a mating problem if the issue is simply alignment.
Well, I've reinstalled just a few of them over the last 20 or so years, and I have never had to file or grind anything to do so. And while experience always helps, so does using long bolts with the heads cut off in two of the side bell housing bolt holes as guide "pins" to help get the alignment right the first time.
