A thin line of orange torque seal applied to the side of nut/bolt head onto the mating surface provides immediate visual cue if that bolt/nut/screw has rotated.
I agree... except these particular bolts are not readily visible to check, and that's why they're safety wired. In fact, if you click on this thread The Joy of Torque Seal you'll see I actually was using Torque Seal on them, but it didn't occur to me until after I'd done it, that I couldn't see the Torque Seal without taking the shifter apart!
