Thanks to all who commented on this topic.

After sleeping on it I've decided that tying the beam to the wall is much more desirable than burying half the beam flange in the wall. This is not only a cleaner detail but also maintains the integrity of the shaft wall. And since there are no pressing conditions (i.e. column placement) that would dictate a shift in the beam I see no reason to cut into the wall.
