Entering the slip pivot with heads turned to promenade doesn't have to diminish the pull of head weight and "fullness" of the pivot; It just tends to -- even on some high level competitors to a lesser degree, but especially on students.
As I mentioned, neither version is incorrect, and everybody is entitled to his preferences. If I were coaching a couple who danced the Fallaway & Rock with the heads turned to PP on step 3, I wouldn't "correct" them for choosing an interpretation that isn't my own preference. However, if they were struggling with the slip pivot, the lady's head weight would be pretty high on my list of culprits.
