I have a question that is based on the GD@SE question, "Is there a reason Hillary Clinton's logo has hidden notches?". Like that questions, this question is purely about graphic design and not political.
I have read though the responses on that page and I think I understand the concern about overlapping edges creating artefacts leading to the issue of inverse trapping. What I want to know is if and what logic goes into selecting the displacement of the notches?
Based on the responses to that question, I am confused as to why there wasn't more displacement to the new vertex that make the notches. For example, the right column's notch could move to the right more so that that its top-left corner's inner edge was in the center of the top part the red arrow's top triangle, but the designer didn't do that. Wouldn't that have improved the work by making a shadow, for instance, less likely to cause overlap conflicts?
With a larger displacement:
