The only possible advantage that I can think of is that corona generation 
could be reduced a little by "spreading" out the charge.  My new transformer 
produces 22kV, so there might be a reason to use this for the higher voltage. 
  My coil is set up with this configuration, but I see no advantage to it as 
far as the tank circuit operation.  I do like the symmetry though :o)
