Not so hard to imagine: Say you transitioned from steel line to AN using a tube adapter just after the elbow at the trans. That steel line is now supporting the AN line, unless you tie it up somewhere. Then beat on it around a track for 24 hours, hopping curbs, etc. It may not fail at all, but why take the chance? If you're gonna go AN, do it all the way.
