That video is really good, I wish I'd seen it before I learned this the hard way.  I had multiple ejections riding steep terrain in WBP where I couldn't hold on in the run-out compressions. A wise co-worker suggested I shallow out my brake angle.  I now subscribe to the statement that you want your wrists straight when your weight distribution is "balanced" on the bike. As Andrew mentioned that's a function of bike geometry/cockpit setup. It's also a factor of terrain you ride. I quite like a steep brake angle for blue/black trails on fromme (easier to keep it zesty), but rotating things back for the steep and deep does sometimes happen when I remember to. Maybe you bias it to the bigger moves for safety. I notice myself playing a lot more with brake angle on my hard tail too.
