That's correct, it's to keep the outlets covered in gas all the time while accelerating. Anytime you get hit in the rear you've got trouble, regardless of the outlet position. I think most impacts will fracture a fuel cell if it's not protected by your bumper or frame.
I've got my outlets at the rear, and my fuel filter and pump below the tank also. I see a lot of street rods with a similar setup.
