any reason why the pcv line runs through two fittings on intake?

as titled, is there a reason that the pcv line on a 5.0 runs through the fitting on the edge of the upper intake, then another hose from that runs to the centre of the intake, also looks like the one it runs through feeds into the plenum?

Any logic to this? can i just run the PCV to another vacuum source in the centre of the upper intake, either the capped off one, or the large one that goes to the vacuum tree (im not using the tree any more, its a 5.0 swap)

i cant think of a logical reason why i cant just use any old vacuum, but feel free to correct me..

reason i ask is because i have explorer fuel rails on a mustang 5.0 and the pcv hose interferes with the fuel rail.
