  This may be true.  But in the snapping out of rhizomes, you can 
uproot clumps and you can snap out unseen increase from the base of 
the bloomstalk.  I continue to cut.

   Cutting or breaking off rhizomes from the toe of the mother 
rhizome has not been a growth deterrent at transplant.  The 'cutting 
and shaping' of the toe is simply a cosmetic thing and would be done
only for shipping or at sales.
