Default adding right thrust with washers??

I have read several times of putting washers on the left side of the engine mount to gain right thrust. My question is,
when you shim one rail of the mount and "kick it out" a degree or so, then that side of the mount is no longer at a 90 degree angle to the firewall but the other side is. This would seem to twist or distort the engine mount. In other words, the 2 engine mount rails are forced into 2 different angles. How well does this adjustment work?

Oh, by the way , I have always had the thrust angles built into the firewall, Im just curious as to why someone would use the washer method.
