If it really bothers you, it looks like it wouldn't hurt to cut it off. From what I can see in the picture it falls between mains. There is only one way to string mains so the string won't ever bridge that gap. Although cutting off that piece could be aesthetically unpleasant and also create a sharp end.
That is what a person at a pro shop did without asking me and I'm extremely perturbed at how it looks. I'd rather have it sticking out than cut off. I am waiting for tomorrow to call Head and see if they could in anyway send me a new grommet set although TW says head hasn't even started producing them.
