I dont see how it could be desireable as you are just adding drag via rudder.
Good point. Very boat dependent.
Beach cats, for example really benefit from the lift of some helm angle, as their rudders are deep and efficient, but they have no other CB or keel. Other boats, less so.
But again, lee helm is always bad.
