[TowerTalk] Making rotator loops separate

What is the consensus on whether it's a good idea to make the rotator loop 
to a yagi separate from the rest of the feedline (with barrel connector and 
2 PL-259s).  An unnecessary connection prone to weather, or a good hedge 
against failure of the rotator loop due to flexing?  Two of mine have been 
up for 8 and 6 years respectively, but I'm replacing all my coax on the 
tower following a lightning hit, and if there is a better way I'd like to 
know it.
