Default Split depth

Been looking at old photos of some super deep split positions, with the front shin way past vertical. I'm assuming these are split snatches, but it got me thinking... is there any advantage to splitting that low in the jerk?

I played with it some and found I was able to get lower, and it seemed faster. My front foot had less distance to travel. Recovery was harder to push up out of such a deep position with the front leg, but not awful.

Wondering if anybody has some pros and cons on this one.
