It may be too flexible. IIRC, there is a very recent paper from the group
of Wilfred van Gunsteren about something like 'Limits to size and flexibility
in the FEP method'. Wait, I may have the reference...
Yes, here it comes:
Single-step perturbations to calculate free energy
differences from unphysical reference states: Limits
on size, flexibility, and character.

OK, so it may be not relevant to FE integration methods (like growing),
but you should have a look anyway, I think.
