Default Interstage resistor question

I'm using a interstage 1:1 transformer in my amp like this


Question about resistor R22. I'm thinking of removing this resistor in order to increase the load on the 5687 and so lowering the distortion. There must be some pitfalls I'm not thinking of, anyone?

In that way you may obtain some resonance conditions. Up to oscillation

BTW, increasing the load is not always a good idea...

I can think agood reason why the resistor is there. it might be there to keep the transformer frpm ringing.
