I do not see why 2-3 feet need to be cut the tape splices used to go into the processor are only 1-2 inches long I think big commercial labs cut off more because if the average commercial producer sees a speck of dust they have an aneurism. Either try to ask fotokem nicely to not cut so much or send it to a smaller lab which can cater to experimental film more easily.
