Functional Design?

From RRC: “[The Revolution] will come with a silver stand that makes the system a welcome, artistic component of any multimedia setup, whether it’s displayed vertically or horizontally.”

While I believe the Revolution stand is just a design choice, and a nifty one at that, could it contain any hidden functionality? Does the controller’s 3D space work better when the system is tilted via the stand? This is probably over analysis, but alas, it’s a minor unknown in a sea of unknowns.

What do you think?
