Diode board layout

Diode board layout
I'm beginning work on a 5F4 Super clone and noticed something. On blackface amps the the diode/bias board runs left to right along the chassis. On the layout for the 5F4 the bias resistors and caps are on the main board but it looks like they still run left to right instead of up and down which would take up less room. So, am I correct in guessing that there is a technical reason for them to be oriented the way they are? Thanks, Mark
