Cooking the pumpkin before making the pie....

Hello all......

Cook's Illustrated has a pumpkin pie recipe this month that calls for cooking the pumpkin before making the pie. The idea is to create better texture through cooking off water which also concentrates flavor. My question is, do you think this would be a good idea for a cheesecake? And, can I substitute marscapone for the cream cheese ounce for ounce?
