I dunno about that. Two more servos, an inevitable seam in the wing, extra linkage in the airstream unless you can do one of those direct aileron drivers that small, and the cosine of 12 degrees is 0.978, which seems pretty close to one to me, particularly since this makes it a non-planar wing which may get rid of some of the induced drag. Plus it's easier to fly rudder-elevator smoothly.

I suppose the launches will be somewhat lower without the ability to dial in some reflex, and if you're doing dlg contest tasks the ability to add a lot of drag sometimes would be nice.
