I also find it odd that nearly all header builders consider "equal length" being just back to each collector, not to the turbine. If they aren't perfectly equal to the turbine, who cares - a bit of a challenge with most of our turbos being off-set.
Which is why I built mine equal length to the turbo.

The unequal shorty headers should take their "design" one step further and eleminate the collectors. Just use a step-up log design and reduce the exhaust volume to absolute minimum.
