Does it not end up positioning your weight too far forward :?

I used to ride road bikes with drops, so I understand the multiple hand positions benefit and on my bike with bar ends, I often ride with my hands in a similar position to riding with drop bars with my hands on the brake hoods. However, I thought MTB frames generally had a longer top tube designed to be used with straight bars, so aren't the front of the drops or the brake hoods too far forward, if you see what I mean?
