Default 13mm default stance setback - negate it or leave it?

Hey guys,

So the board i'm getting is a Rossignol Templar with a 13mm (about .5") stance setback. Is this considered a lot, or not very much set back at all?
I'm considering negating the setback by placing the front binding forwards by one hole (which would move my stance forward by 1cm... right?). I ride on the east coast, and there isn't very much pow to speak of at all so a setback does nothing for me. On the other hand, while I don't foresee myself going into the park anytime soon, I want to be able to ride switch and do spins and stuff on groomed runs.

Should i bother trying to negate the setback? Or will that make it worse, since the Templar has a progressive sidecut (which means it might feel 'right' with a little setback)?
