Why you dont make the inserts shorter? And .... 0.6mm more length for the inserts will be absorbed by your fibres (depending on the fibre weight)

The inserts come with a cap which is handy, the small step in the thickness will not increase the overall flex anyway as this area is much stiffer with the bindings anyway and i much rather keep as much thread as possible. And the fiberglass isn't much thicker than 0.4mm (not 0.6) so for sure will not absorb the thickness without a bump in the topsheet.

I built plenty of skis with those cores so can't see a reason why it wouldn't work!
