Default Split Snatch Help

My wife has just recently started to share my interest in Oly lifting. The problem is she lacks the mobility to get anywhere resembling low in an overhead squat position. Both her shoulders and her hips lack mobility. She's 37, and fought MMA professionally at a very high level for the better part of a decade. That info was just to say she's a pretty banged up masters age lifter. If she were younger and less banged up, I would force her to work on mobility until she could get the positions. But with her age, and sports related injury history, at what point do you say "screw it" and let her split snatch?
Second part of the question is, what kind of programing differences do you have for splitters instead of squatters?
Thanks for the help
