LTM8002 PCB Layout

Hello all,

Regarding the LTM8002 Recommended PCB Layout, I wanted to know if the following components layout is acceptable (compared to the recommended datasheet layout):

Pros: 

1- Output capacitor ground return path loop is much shorter than the recommended layout

2- Signal ground is more isolated from power ground (connected only to A7 pin)

Cons:

1- Feedback resistor is placed at bottom layer, and the resistor connection to ground is a bit longer - can it cause problem? 

Can someone say why I shouldn't  use this layout?

Thanks!

Nir
