Think this is an internet myth.

The mount's not big enough.

There's a discussion here about putting a CPU chip on a 50mm f/1.2 AI-S Nikkor and it was noted that you have to grind a piece off the rear element to get space for the contacts.

Take a look at this image and see how hard it is even with the wider EF mount ...

The rearmost lens element is so large the contacts has to invade into it.
