Letting exhaust hang while doing subframe, etc.

so I'm in the process of starting a lot of under car work on my 328i, and I'm completely stuck on the 4 exhaust nuts at the front of the car.

I have PB blasted them for hours, used 6 sided sockets and breaker bars, I've even called 4 shops around me and they don't wanna tackle them, taken the car to 2 shops and had them tell me the same. I'm about to just cut these off eventually but I don't have the tools available at the moment and I really need to get going on my subframe, etc.

my (stupid)question is that I remember reading a diy where a guy let his exhaust just hang from the front and dropped the rear part to do what he had to do. has anyone tried this before? would it damage the exhaust or bend it badly?

here's a link where the guy says "no harm" in letting it hang... although from his diy I'm a little sketched out.. not the most professional diy and his car is in bad shape.. would really like to have some fellow e46fanatics with experience chime in
