Tie rod / dag link ends left twisted following alignment

For the alignment experts out there...

Are there any issues, from either a handling or wear perspective, if the tie rod ends or drag link ends are left twisted following an alignment?

By "twisted", I mean they are not left in a neutral position and point at different angles. A bit hard to explain, but see the following pictures (not mine, taken from elsewhere on the net):

Being that the ball joint on the end has 360 degrees of motion, I wouldn't expect this to be a problem, but I wasn't sure if it might contribute to some sort of handling issues, perhaps bump steer if they were left at opposite and extreme angles.
