The only thing that comes to mind would be to ensure that it won't affect your "touch" sensor mount. That requires a certain amount of clearance.Alright, now I remember why I was having trouble with the L bracket design. In order to get screw clearance to the X carriage, I need to have the hotend mounted in a way that brings down the carriage plate 3mm to the bed. Is there any reason why this would not be desirable ?
I cant really think of any reason why its not a good idea... am I missing something? If its too close I could shim the top of the hot end to bring it down, but then I would need to buy longer screws...

My overnight print went well.... 230 mm wide on a 235 mm wide print bed is cutting it awfully close... Managed to print off a 230 X 135 mm flat base without any curling at the corner(s). Not sure if that was due to finally getting the bullseye installed, or 3.0Charlie's advice about slowing/stopping the part cooling fan (I had it set to 50% which doesn't kick in until several layers in).
