Topic - gritstone slabs and boulder pads

ripper - on 05 Sep 2013
so trad routes are graded for an on-sight lead, right?
Therefore the adjectival part of the grade takes into account the risk/potential danger of a groundfall.
So in the case of a gearless slab, say Great Slab at Froggatt or Snivling Shits, does using a boulder mat or two reduce the grade? and if so, by how much? or is a mat just considered part of the rack these days?
I'm sure this has been asked before so apologies if I'm flagellating a deceased equine.
