My old professor Cliff Sowder would disagree with you. Speaking from experience, as opposed to just conjecture. I've busted up plenty of beer, mayo, etc and never saw a cord. And, I must say Cliff made some of the best Carribean Blue I've ever seen. Yes, out of all sorts of bottles. Was this a panacea for perfect 96 with any glass, absolutely not but it is amazing what you can do. This was back in the late 70's too.

I've made a lot with this type of glass, done right, it's nice. The knowledge of how to manipulate the material is the trick, Patented Magic formula, Meh.
