If you look on this photo you can see that WALZ notched the body in two positions with a dremel so it can be locked back whilst reloading as well.
On the other side, he used carbon fiber tape to cover the other slot in a fashionable way. It could also be an ambidextrous rifle.

I feel the forward notch is more necessary to prevent bolt blow-back, but Walz did both ends. You're correct that without a return spring, when the bolt is back on a Nelson it will stay - but the only thing holding it there is friction. So, I could see the case for the rear slot if you were, say, tight in a bunker trying to reload with the marker pointed at the ground.

Trracer seems a good choice. Worked out pretty well for me but probably going to wind up selling it soon.

If the rifle is Ambi, I'd have to make it somewhat like the safety on a VM, where the bolt is always being turned in the same way (down on the right and up on the left). I've also heard that having the bolt only on one side causes pre mature wear on one side of the bolt/hammer assembly (I have no idea how true these claims are). Anyone have any experience with this?

I didn't notch both ends out of amazing Nelson knowledge, but more out of what we'll call 'idiocy'.
She sure turned out out nice!
