"When your tool, or more commonly a piece of scraper steel, is driven into the kerf, where does the wood go that was once in the kerf. It seems the only place it has to go is to the sides in the form of crushed wood fiber. Crushed wood fiber is not going to provide as favorable a glue surface as a chisel pared surface."

That is why it is a squared off thing like a scraper blade, none of the crushing goes to the sides, they look fine. However, your method if try\uly 10 seconds ish is great.
