Don't be afraid to file or grind the epoxy to the shape you need. Just be careful not to break the gold wire in there.

Sure...just its a lot easier for the elements to stay physically connected at exactly the right distance for the tiny gold contact wire to do its job when its all encased. You can get leds that are open air, assembled directly on your pcb, when even smt is too big.
