I do it that way sometimes. It depends on how hard it pancakes. Sometimes it will have some residual floaties. If that is the case, I will put it in secondary. Other times, it isn't necessary.
doobah, for something like 71B, which is a very popular mead yeast, what about this modification to your process? What if you hit it with the sparkelloid before you rack it? I.e., crash->sparkelloid->rack->age->bottle The idea being to remove the maximum amount of yeast as soon as possible following fermentation.

Yup. Just make sure to nuke it first.
You could always ferment to dryness and then backsweeten to taste.
