Someone should write a book about the ME3 safety culture in which pilots could tell their stories.

Oh, sorry I forgot that if you stand up and identify yourself you will never get a job in an airline again - at least not in that part of the world.

T1 is not an engine variable. It formerly referred to a temporary runway restriction in the Boeing OPT, and in the MIA case by coincidence, a taxiway/runway intersection.

The culture in lots of companies in the gulf is to depart from intersections, as they assume that they will save fuel, although lots of times they end up holding at the intersection?? Use the full length of the runway. period.

Tarik, the amount of times I have seen someone waiting for a slot at the full length hold point and I have gone ahead of them from the intersection far outweighs your scenario. There are also some places without full length taxiways (permanently or just with WIP) where a backtrack would cost you a departure opportunity in a gap of arrivals. Far, far better to plan on intersection and use full length if there is no time penalty. It's called "flexibility", and comes under the general guise of "airmanship" and "planning".

Tarik... Why use full length, period? If the performance allows you'll find you have so much more operational flexibility. After all, V1 is V1 is V1 no matter how much tarmac you've got!!!

Just make damn sure you are using the correct data and the correct intersection...
