High back binding adjustment?

how come the top of the high back plate of the bindings needs to be parallel with the actual board? So if you're looking at your board from up top, you can draw parallel lines along the length of the board and the top edge of the binding. I just bought some K2 formulas and on the instruction booklet, it said to adjust accordingly. I'm not saying it's wrong, i'm just wondering why?

It helps transfer your power to the board more effectively. I've ridden both ways and I'm probably not aggressive enough to really notice a difference.

I'm a very aggressive rider and I have found I prefer to set my highbacks part way between my angle and parallel with the edge of the board. I set my angles ducked evenly at 15/15 and set my highbacks at about 8 degrees.If I set my highbacks parallel with the edge of the board the pressure on the back of my calf is on the side of my leg and doesnt feel natural. I also tend to ride with my highbacks set very loose, not tightly against the back of my leg, so the effect is alot less pronounced. I tend to ride from the ankle. If that makes sense.

it is not essential, but it is more efficient

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
