Cranks are illegal? Hallelujiah, praise the lord!
... I don't think they are, but I would be quite happy if that was the case...
Anyways... drop nosebands are to discourage a horse from opening its mouth in resistance to the bit; personally I dislike them, aesthetically and functionally. If I had my druthers, I'd prefer a flash noseband as it's less likely to restrict the airway at all should something fall out of place.
