Any objections changing LNAB of Mary "Matthews" Moorman (1758-1819) to Unknown? [closed]

The maiden name of Zachariah Moorman's wife Mary is often seen as Matthews however this has been shown to be highly improbable (explained on profile) as the marriage record once used to establish that maiden name is now known to be several years after Zachariah had married his Mary Unknown, signed deeds with her and had the first two children with her. 

Parents are in the process of being detached (with appropriate profile notations to discourage reattachment). My thoughts are the LNAB should be changed to Unknown. However, the WikiTree quides seem to offer conflicting advice, seeming to suggest leave the wrong one in place until the correct one is known. I think that is a poor choice in the case of her being repeatedly and commonly misidentified. Any thoughts on this from others in the Quakers Project?

Extensive documentation is linked from Zachariah's profile to his free space page (primarily focused on his probable parentage).
