Some of the extra pins is used by the CIC lockout chip.
You want it to use extra pins for extra features exclusive to the NES version? Wouldn't that disappoint Famicom users?
Those extra pins can not help to implement any extra functions, and nes carts does not have any extra function compare to famicom. So,magnus87, why it should be connected? Just to be connected because they exist?

I have a question on this:

This NES version operates the EXACT same way as if you bought the Famicom Board and used the Gyromite Adapter?

My friend wants one done this way and I just want to make sure before I tell him what to buy. If there is truly no difference, I'll just tell him to get the Everdrive Famicom board and the Gyromite Cart. This way, no cutting is to be required.

@wolfpacleader1986 it depends what system your friend has, i have a famicom av and the edn8 cos of the superior sound :) as soon as krikzz announced the edn8 i bought the famicom av right away lol

if your friend has a nes console then just buy the nes version, adapters are bit tricky to grab nowadays cos they aint in all gyromite carts :) i can tell you that first hand lol i ended up buying a retail boxed adapter which cost me £40  :o

NES version will operate exactly same like fami + adapter

If you want Famicom sound from your NES. TBH, the Konami extra sound (Akumajou Densetsu/Castlevania 3) is not fully emulated yet (at least, I'm not hearing it from my N8/Famicom combo)

If you're gonna be using it in an NES anyway, just get the NES version. Access to the SD card should be there for ease of updating the ED's OS. Even if the N8-NES version is gonna be a bit more expensive than the N8-Fami, it'll probably be cheaper than paying and over-inflated eBay price on an NES Gyromite that may or may not have the converter in it and the N8 Famicom and whatever mods you need to do to the adapter.

The extra sound channel is emulated, your famicom adapter and nes are probably not modded to allow it.

This is a 27 years old console. Nobody cares getting extra sound channel. Let's thank, that we STILL can play it, at least.

I care and so do many other. Playing these game without extension channel would be like playing Super Mario Bros. with 2 instruments missing. But it is supported anyway and it will get more accurate with future update.
