WNEW AM, in NYC, had sloping top hats on its towers, made from
the upper 10m or so of the top guyset.  Worked fine for years,
even in the nighttime directional array.    

My guess is, if the guys were at 45 degrees to the tower, the 
loading impact would be .7 of what you would see with a purely 
horizontal top hat.  Nothing to worry about.
