POLL: iPhone 5 Screen Repair

Even with people being aware that the LCD and digitizer glass of the iPhone 4 and 4S are fused together, many people still purchase just the digitizer glass and try to attempt to separate the two so they can repair a cracked screen. The problem is, the LCD and digitizer are fused together during the manufacturing process, which makes the separation of the LCD and digitizer impossible. While you can separate the two, it is not possible to do so without damaging the LCD.

Now knowing that the iPhone 5 LCD and Digitizer are fused together, would any of you still try to do the screen repair just using the digitizer, or would you opt to get the full LCD Digitizer assembly (which is already fused together.)
