After reading lots of posts on here I would say that Chitty seems to know his stuff man. If he says it can be done without removing the mount I believe him. I think maybe some people remove it to make access easier.
Heym thanks for the vote of confidence! Yes you can slip the belt off. But yes you have to take the mount off during a routine change for the reasons mentioned earlier.

Yes but you don't need to remove the belt from the rest of the timing belt route if replacing the cam. Just slide it off the camshaft pulley and put it back when you're done. On a side note, this style of motor mount is much easier to remove vs. the older styles and it's not just because there's a little more clearance between the engine and frame rail.
