There is a risk of puncture from the bone edges. Then even as the meat ages it shrinks the bag which has become adhered to the meat by that point and MAY be stressed to the point of tearing a pin hole or worst. Furthermore if you were to move the sub-primal sometime during the aging you might cause wear at some point between the bone and the bag. I guess I’m just not sold on aging a bone-in piece in a Drybag…sort of akin to wearing a raincoat in the shower I guess!
BTW some time back a poster insisted he wanted to use a bone-in and it was suggested that he use some sterile food safe paper perhaps to cover the bone tips before sealing. OTOH including a foreign substance such as the paper could introduce bacteria so you want to be careful and realize that risk exists.
