Drive shaft phase

So i was at the local drive line shop getting some new u joints and a slip joint. The guys there pointed out that the drive shaft is 45 degrees out of phase. So why did rover make the shaft out of phase and does it really matter? Is just anotehr case of Rover doing it weird?

These Rovers have a seriously messed up pinion angle, rather than do the proper thing and put a dual cardon joint at one end they changed the phasing of the shaft to cancel vibrations.

Ah, ok, so it either needs to be out of phase or a DC shaft. Thanks.
