In my talk with the factory sales guy at Datyon, he said the reason for
having a leader of steel guy wire is to prevent any abrasion or anyone
cutting it, messing around, etc.  He said that while they don't recommend
it, there is no technical reason why you can't go to the ground with it.  He
said that if you are confident that the guys are in a place where they won't
get bothered by man or beast, then sure, you can run them all the way to the
ground.  In other words, use your best judgement.
