This is exactly what my research shows. In fact, the design you specify is also frequently used with a peg, that extends down from the slide area, and holds the horn up for the player. The bent version is a real improvement though it is a bit difficult to actually put down when not in use. That's why I have a stand for the thing.
My opinion for what it's worth...
