Well since you have no pictures to give some decent feedback on, try strapping in the board, get a chair, put your hands on it and balanace on the edge of the board and see how far you can angle the board (90 degrees from base being the most extreme) before the toe touches the ground and make note of the angle your board is at from a visual perspective. Do it again for your heels. If it's pretty steep of an angle, chances ar you're never gonna touch the ground with it unless you plan on alpine carving and/or doing some very aggressive angled carves. With the bindings on, the toes and heels are elevated quite a bit above the ground so I don't think an inch is much to worry about in general.
Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.
