...and further, that the assumption of 'brittle' water necks is not necessarily worthy of radiator replacement.

It's just in a convenient place to put your hand (and weight) when working on the car. The plastic nipple on the reservoir tank was already bright white at the neck from stress and had been reinforced with a brass tube by a previous mechanic.
