[TowerTalk] Shunt fed tower verticals- risks in SO2R?

Well actually let's say any kind of tower vertical .
I'm conscious of the fact that when feeding a tower as a vertical in
SO2R configuration, that the Yagi atop the tower looks very much like a
high voltage point and can potentially feed back to the HF transceiver
causing front end receiver damage.
However, I am not aware that this is a problem in practice, and indeed
two UK users report no problems when running a shunt fed tower on 160m,
whilst simultaneously listening on HF on another receiver connected to
the yagi. I would nevertheless be in interested to hear from users here
with practical experience thereof. Should I be concerned?
