I don't dispute that this is traditional, but I have no use for the heads and feel the same as you about working, while eating. I peel them to the tail and leave that on for flavor. If you were to add a cheesecloth bag, it would leave a gaping hole, when you removed it, or probably be less than appetizing, if you left it in.

I will certainly defer to tradition.
