Clint Smith would argue against the efficiency of the M16 due to this and that is because of getting "canoes" put through your head when the enemy shoots you there because your head sticks up higher with the M16 than with many other guns
I got to thinking about this and it drove me nuts until I went out and measured the center of the rear sight to the comb or where your face is suppose to do.

My A2 Style AR is right at 1/2 inch higher then the rear sight to the comb on the M1.

I really think that's a non-issue.
