No it's not -- is there so the safety didn't flap around when you're riding.
Yeah, it's designed not to dangle. I've run into issues where I was trying to tune my front/rear lines and the rears had shrunken so much that in order to get them even it put all the stress on the flag out line instead of the depower rope. There's just an inherent limitation there, you either lengthen the flag out line or live with the fact that your control geometry will be limited by that length. It's the reason why a lot of racers don't ride with flag out safety systems, they want to have full control over line length and the ability to tune their bar without worrying about the flag out line taking up the slack that the depower rope should be holding. If you're tuning your bar and you cannot get your line ends even without putting the load on the flag out line, it's time to put pigtails or extensions on your rear lines.
