With the option to pull the tack forward of the " old fashioned" pin in the boom fitting now with inhauls , I suppose the sailmaker could suggest that with clew at the mark, pulling the tack to the mast is beyond the design limits. But 90% of boats use this method now.

Clew out past the mark?

Sail showing its age?
