I think it can also be quite a bit A2C dependent - make it a 29er with a 160mm travel fork, and you'll see a fair bit of divergence on the best approach to keep weight on the front wheel.  In the more trail-bike 130-140mm range you can slide a couple of spacers under the stem and with longer reach bikes you end up with a bit more useful range of motion that lets you properly load the front end, so slammed is optimal for fewer people if they try it a lot. For my part, I do run slammed/inverted on my hardtail, but it's mostly to compensate for adding a full inch of fork travel to that setup, and that I mostly use it on the road.
