Carrots in the Coleslaw for Topping Pulled Pork Sandwiches?

Any self anointed BBQ experts want to weigh in on the proper coleslaw to top Pulled Pork Sandwiches? In the past I've always just grabbed the pre-shredded bags of green/red cabbage and carrot and then made a homemade dressing as I'm typically making a ton. It always tastes good on its own, but for some reason just doesn't seem like the ideal slaw for a sandwich topper. I've wondered if it's due to that it often seems like there's too many carrots up in the mix. Do carrots even belong in a slaw like this? It's seems like that they might not be missed.
