I assume so or the ones in my Alienware area 51 are going to be a problem.....  To be honest I've had drives hanging off cables in precarious positions and haven't suffered any relevant failures.

Should be completely fine.  Plenty of towers and other equipment have spinning disks laying or sitting at angles other then flat and they don't seem to have any ill side effects.
