Overhead drum mics at different heights?

Overhead drum mics at different heights?

I've been noticing more recently overhead drum mics at different heights from eachother. Mainly the microphone over the ride cymbal on the right being lower, wouldn't this inherently run into phase problems?

Example of this would be 2:36 of this video, you'll have to pause it YouTube - Underoath Studio Journal #1 - New album out Ø9.Ø2.Ø8

It appears the overheads are both measured to be exactly the same distance from the pocket of the snare. Very common practice that really helps to sure up phase in the overheads.

Pardon my ignorance, what do you mean by pocket, do you mean centre?

Since when are drum kits perfectly flat? Why should the microphones be at the same level relative to the floor? You're not mic'ing the floor...
