For example, I have my home server on the top of some shelves behind me, about ~4m away from me. Very rarely when there's a lot of disk chatter, it sounds like it's coming from my side.
Just try elevating or lowering your front speakers and turning around. You'll barely notice a difference except maybe if you're really close to them.
If we're talking a significant height difference, I'd just try keeping them at an angle just so that you're not missing out on the treble frequencies, but that's about as much care as I'd have.
I have no idea were you got two feet above ear height, ever since 5.1 came about, decades ago, its always been recommended about ear height.
