It would increase the area of weld, but the original weld along the side 
reinforces the strength where the bolts are located.  I don't know if 
this would be a problem or not.  You could increase the thickness and 
width of the ear to compensate.  Don't forget to take the changes in 
dimensions into account.

As a side not. I'm getting notices of excessive bounces, but it appears 
all of my posts have made it to the reflector, so this is also a test.  
Perhaps I've caught a termite, or someone is trying to spoof my account
