Salting Matazah

Agur 762: many are accustomed not to put salt on the matzah on Passover (while baking) and so we are accustomed in ashkenaz...

And there is no reason in the matter to prohibit it (nevertheless) due to "Al titosh torat imecha" [do not abandon Your Mother's Torah] the  one should not deviate.
Or iow:
Customs can take on a life of their own regardless of the strict letter of the Halachah.
