This is just fine until a connector is bad, you cut off the old one, and use the wrong code for the new one.
Well clearly you have to wire the new connector the same as the old one. I did say both ends have to be the same.
Haven't we seen cables that are plugged into a panel, then go disappear into the wall or ceiling and go many feet, where we can't tell where they go? You can't check the other end of such a cable if you have to terminate it.
In this case simply sticking to your personal standard of A or B doesn't mean that you will match the other end - you will have to find the other end first and see how is is terminated.
That's true but the ready-mades damn well better not look hand-made, or there will be blood.
You've lost me here.
