At some stage we need to consider these variations are not necessarily done because they are technically superior, instead they are a compromise for the available space.

A rear engine race car of boxer configuration having very little ground clearance running sustained full throttle at high RPM needs to move a lot of gas in very little available space. Look at the size of those primaries.

Still, I see one key feature modern high performance engine builders do not violate, equal length primary pipes.
