I don't think the amount that the filed egde of the ring will be different from inside to outside would be greater that the total endgap tolerance.If your ring gap is allowed from .028 to .030 the ends ring wouldn't be out of square .002 would they?Arbitrary numbers of course.

I think you are splitting hairs. The main thing is that the gaps do not close up and touch during operation. If they do you will probably lose a chunk of top of the piston maybe more. I'd rather have too much gap than not enough any day.
