1) With my WO binos, the shortest "neutral" diopter position is with the two thumbscrews parallel to each other on top of the bino. I prefer to have these pointing down and toward me where they are easier to manipulate.
2) It raises the height of the eyepieces by about an inch and a half, and reduces the scope's moment arm very slightly.
3) I prefer how the image looks flipped upside down. Just kidding.
Try it! It's how all the cool kids are doing it these days, I hear.

And of course it works perfectly well.
I have two pair of Mark Vs though, and both use a twist lock mechanism to secure eyepieces, so nothing sticking out.
Denks and Earthwin also use a twist lock diopter.

Only in the northern hemisphere.
For those of us living near the equator everything appears sideways.
