Interesting. I've never heard of splitting the SR's, though I have heard of splitting the XL's. Some do it to try to turn it into an IR, but apparently the coating on the XL is a self-healing polymer, like that dude from Terminator 2, so if you split it you get some instant release but then it reverts to being XL. Pretty weird, yet cool.
