Question short shifter and synchro wear

Would the fact that a short throw shifter may cause the linkage to rub against the square metal 'frame' (under the center console, around the shifter assembly) lead to added stress on any of the transmission parts? It seems like it may have the same affect as resting your hand on the gear knob while driving.

The frame will tend to unload the synchros, unlike resting your hand on the shift knob.

But, as mentioned, it would be best to make the frame clear the shifter to prevent the trans jumping out of gear.
