New Snorkle Question?

I have noticed that all the snorkles have the top 90 degree fitting facing to the rear for obvious reasons. At the lower speeds most of these bikes use in deep water this is obviously fine.
My question concerns the guys who run at 50+ mph. Wouldn't the air rushing past the snorkles at this speed create a draft effect similar to how a chimney works and actually decrease the airflow to the carb?
Wouldn't it make sense to friction fit the top 90 and turn it to face the front when not running deep. Shouldn't this create a "ram air" effect and force more air to the box at higher speeds? Or would this added air cause problems with the jetting?
Just wondering if anyone has seen bikes running rich at higher speeds and if this setup would make any difference?

I have seen a few bikes with the inlets facing forward, but as you stated I would thing it would cause problems.
