Impeller design - why canted and not centered?

As a non-mechanic amatuer i feel like the block design is more complicated than i would expect.

Why is the impeller canted at a downward angle and not parallel to case by a few degrees? Why not centered?

The few old cars i worked on just seemed simpler/obvious with less things to question.

My guess, to assist with priming the water pump or maybe prevent buildup in the bottom of the pump. Maybe so the coolant drains away from the seal when not running?

All guesses.
