Default Oops! graft grain wrong!

I'm just about done building 3 OMs, my 3rd, 4th and 5th build. I don't know how I missed the fact that the back graft bracing is supposed to have the grain oriented 90 degrees to the back grain. I must have skimmed over that page in Cumpiano. This is rather upsetting. The guitars are all coming out very nicely. So the question is, do I fix somehow? Or let it go? It makes perfect sense why you would orient the grain that way now that I'm aware. The graft is basically useless running the same direction. Any thoughts?? I could fix the one under the sound hole relatively easily, but the others would be very difficult.

Thanks for your input!
