PNW: I have the '10 Heritage, and I have my front binding about 1/2" forward of where it should be if I was to adhere strictly to the specs. I did this because that gives me a comfortable stance (amazing how much of a diff 1/2" makes). I think that stance width takes precedence over specs. You can move bindings 1/2" at a time by changing the binding plate position, or 1" (IIRC) at a time by picking the next hole position. If you go "off-centre" by moving your back binding back, you get a longer nose than tail which is great for powder. If you move your front binding forward, you get a more centered board which is better for riding switch. I think when we're talking 1/2" at a time, it's probably not a big deal.
