So I cant help noticing the angle the axle is in compared to the air spring. Especially noticeable on the rear axle where it looks to be cranked forward a good 30 degrees (not measured).

Anyone know Land Rover's reasonings for this? I see a few Aussie off-roaders, who fit Arnott springs, seem to modify the angle first.

I assume that because it's on trailing arms the axle doesn't move up and down but moves through an arc. Most cars do the same, the springs aren't upright but angled. If fitting Gen 3 Arnotts with the extra travel, then changing the angle may well be a good idea. Either that or someone has looked at it like you have and decided it will be better with them more upright without knowing the reason why they are as they are.
