If you want the installation to fail quickly then don't use the thinset under the cement board. The thinset (under the board) represents about an elevation change of about 3/32" if applied in the correct manner. The thinset is there to 100% fill voids created when the fasteners are installed into the cement board.

Using ALL CAPS isn't necessary here, we all can hear you just fine.

You can use a product called Ditra made by Schluter. The build up of the tile will be much less. Go to www.schluter.com for more info. I have installed several thousand sq.ft. of tile over Ditra over the last 10 years with no issues.
