Great points, and I'm also learning to do the same especially into turns. I had the biggest problem of dragging my brakes through berms because I couldn't seem to get my body far enough forward on the bike. Some setup changes later, I'm turning faster and when I can manage to rail a berm the feeling is AMAZING. Also, brake selection is huge here. So many riders on hard metal pads with brakes that don't have a ton of power will end up riding the brakes as they can't really rely on them at the last minute. I recently switched to MTX red ceramic pads on my XT brakes and the power on hand is immense.
