Pre-pitched Mud Bed On Slab?

We had a shower pan that used to sit on the slab for the bathroom. However, now we are going to lay a pre-pitched mud bed.

I don't know if I like the idea of laying a mud bed on the house slab? Why? Well, what if I were to re-model the bathroom again in the future? How does that affect the house slab when pulling out the old mud-bed? Shouldn't be a problem?

I was wondering if I can put something between the mud bed and house slab before laying the pre-pitched mud bed on top? Or?

I thought I also read that they lay thin-set between the slab and the mud-bed so it bonds better to the concrete slab? Again, not liking this idea since I wonder how much pain it will cause when trying to remove in the future.

Lay the new mud bed right on the old slab---If you ever wish to remove it in the future,it will pop loose in chunks---you really don't want a bond breaker under the new pan---
