Amanita muscaria fully formed caps, parboiled

According to the below, it is 10-15 in boiling water (see details). what I wonder is would fully formed caps need slicing. Slicing does increase surface area, but they are already so thin and the chemicals are so soluble in water….
"Cut the A. muscaria cap and stalk into thin slices (no more than 3–4 mm or 1/8” thick) to hasten dissolving of the active constituents. For each 110 g* or 4 oz of mushroom, use 1 liter or quart of water with 1 teaspoon salt. Garlic and bay leaf can be added to the water for flavoring. Bring the water to a rolling boil, then add the sliced mushrooms. Begin timing the cooking once the water returns to a boil. Boil for 10–15 minutes, until the mushroom is soft, then drain and rinse" (Rubel & Arora revised).
