If the armature is removed from a magneto for any reason there will be an inevitable loss of 20% or more in the strength of the magnet(s) in the magneto. Do not imagine that a ‘keeper’ will save the day, the loss occurs in microseconds.

I don’t know where you’ve got this from, but how then is/was the mag manufactured without this “loss” occurring? Wouldn’t this apparent loss be inevitable, given the construction of the mag?
On this basis almost every mag in existence will have suffered similarly, but I have bikes with mags (as apparently do many of thousands of other riders) and they happily light up the mixture most satisfactorily.
