Exception: The equipment grounding conductor permitted in
250.146(D) shall not be required to be connected to the other equipment

Agree, yes. Remember that all EGCs only need be counted as a single wire for volume calcs.Ok, but can strip the wire long attach to the box and then up to the bundle to wirenut? I am trying to keep my EGC count to five. doing this would eliminate another wire just to ground box.
