Seems to me it won't help at all

In order to flex, it's going to have to flex the whole plate as opposed to just at the hole.

It still would not help, I think: the camera bottom plate must have bent down away from the rest of the body. The L-plate can stay flat and is not forced to flex because of the curvature of the bend (also because the plate has only one attachment point to the camera). The plate would be lower than it should and the hole on the side not be properly aligned, that's it.

Thinking of it, I sometimes attach the camera /  L-plate to a monopod head, and carry the whole set by holding the monopod. Maybe I shouldn't do this .... Hmmm. Well I've checked and everything is fine. But I'll be more careful from now on. Thanks to the O/P !
