Yes. I personally don't need this but I want to understand the other side of the debate.

In Israel this debate has opened up over the last few weeks. It seems there are certain circles who want to continue being "religious" but don't feel the need to turn off their cell phones before Shabbat. They say there is a reasoning behind this, I just can't figure out the (theoretical) reasons.

comment Washing for bread before Kiddush. Convenient for sukkos?
But you are saying the blessing to sit in the Sukka and before you actually eat (and eating is the "cause" behind the blessing) we leave the Sukka! An alternative might be to simply consume a larger amount of wine or have some cake (or the like) and then go to wash your hands.

comment Saying Birkat ha-Mazon without having said ha-Motsi before eating
@DoubleAA, what you wrote is true but is not directly connected to this. If there was a Rabinical directive to "skip" Birkat Ha'Mazon in this case you would be right, but thats not the case. It's simply a case of two directives, one being rabinical and the other Deorita.

I believe the discussion was about the blessings for food and such (ברכות הנהנין).
