Probably done it to match the front end.
Looks like it would work, and by the time you have about 1/4 sag or possibly more if you prefer that in a DH bike it should be fine.

Depends on the length of the shock, if he has sqaushed it in there he would need to run low pressure juat to get some sag and then it would most likely be too soft?
