[volt-nuts] 731A output impedance

The 731A is specified to have an output impedance of less than 1.1K in the 10V
setting. A meter with 10 M input Z therefore causes a .01% (100 ppm) reading error.
I understand that when operated using a null meter the output impedance is not a
problem. I would like to use my 731A as a bench standard for my DMMs.
The 10V output is taken through a 1K resistor (R18) from the output pin of the
op-amp. Clearly the op-amp output pin is much lower impedance.
The op-amp is an LM301A and appears to be conservatively compensated.
I am thinking of shorting R18. I understand it provides some protection to the
op-amp and may be a factor in the op-amp stability.
Other than the above, can anyone see why this would be a bad idea?
