Default Shoulder Internal Rotation

After reading a few articles on the Chinese and Russian lifters/coaches it seems they are using an internally rotated shoulder with elbows back for over head positions Snatch and Jerk. Is this position similar the position that Greg suggestions in "Olympic Weightlifting" or is it more dramatic? Does anybody have any experience with their style? Can an internally rotated shoulders elbows back position be dangerous?

I was taught armpits forward and elbows down.

Here are the articles with mention of this style:
