To add to your comments.  Seat tube angle (providing your can drop your seat post) is not important when standing. Also when going downhill, your body must resist braking forces, but also be able to un-weight the front wheel (so maybe long front and short rear is still effective, but I don't think that would be good for cornering, explaining why some EWS pros like shorter bikes). For what I would set up the bike for depends on use?  For trials or slope style, then obviously set up for the most challenging, but for racing or all-round use (such as ride to the ride) then a set up that is most efficient, comfortable or fastest overall (and just be a little bit more careful for the most challenging parts).  Or what if your chosen most challenging parts are off camber slippery corners, and not Dansitions or jumps into rough landing zones.
