To stop the steerer pulling away from the lugged crown centre hole?

Safety was your priorty.
"the crack between the steerer tube and the top of the fork crown"
Was pointing out, the continuous strain from the original crack, and twisting of the crown,
may have been alleviated with hard wood inside the steerer tube. Brake bolt goes through
crown,steerer tube and the wood, giving support. Also help to prevent sheering.
Was a safety point, and quite utilised back in the day (B.C.=before cyclepaths) on racing cycles.
