Constraining bonds that aren't hydrogens - splitPatch usefulness ?

I'm currently trying to constrain bonds for MARTINI simulations in NAMD.
I'm using this suggestion:
And adding to the condition the atom names that are included into
constrained bonds.

Two questions arise:
What is the reason for commenting "splitPatch = SPLIT_PATCH_POSITION;" ?
Is considering these atoms "as hydrogens" for the constraints change
anything else than what I want ? I mean, is there any unintended
consequence later in the code ?

Thanks for your consideration
