Default Kegging Hefeweizen

I have some questions on kegging a hefeweizen.

1. should you?

I know it's done everyday, but my concern is settling.
When you open a bottle of Hefe it is often settled. You pour some, swirl, top off. You really cn't do this with a keg.

Does the yeast usually stay suspended in the keg? Am I concerned for no reason?
Is it best to just stick with bottles?

You have some good points but if you want to taste the difference, bottle half a batch and keg the other.
I don't think it will be much of a difference.

Just kick the keg every once in a while and the yeast will rouse off the bottom.
