I have had several Inverted L's up including a Spi-Ro 160 short dipole L 
with feed and vertical up 70 feet and the horizontal pointing at the SE but 
going from  70 feet down to about 55 feet.  I was gangbusters into PY.

I think sloping the horizontal wire has some of the effect of a sloper with 
some directivity toward the slope.  I found that most inverted L's are 
mostly omni but somewhat oval to and away from the horizontal wire.

I agree that vertical wire should be as far from the tower as possible. 
Even antenna guru K4DLI runs a ground U only a few feet away from his 70 
foot Rohn tower.
