The problem with the liquid metal shunt is uncertainty. Basically you can end up with unbalanced power reading reduction on each of the shunts. It is pretty hard to compensation accurately.
Resistor mod is also not permanent, you can remove them anytime and clean the silver paint with rubbing alcohol.
