Peterglass, there is a 2005 supplement, though the IRC and IBC you are under state the same; http://www.reedconstructiondata.com/...s/connecticut/

I wouldn't suggest clipping them for others in a high wind area as it makes easier pull-out (as said) and voids the shingle warranty...
If you are hitting your head on them, Photo #4: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...bout-diffusion
