Default Do not rotate the eggs

We always here this in breeding sheets:

"Do not rotate the eggs vertically, it could kill the embryo".

I've been searching for a while and I cant find anything to for the basis of this advise. (other than the fact the reptile eggs have no chalazae)

Anyone know where this comes from? and are there recorded event than flipping the egg vertically would definitely kill the embryo?

Thanks.

ps. and yes, u guessed it. I have 3 eggs which were outside the snake coil and I just want to make sure I give them the best chance possible when I incubate them. The MUST have rolled away from the clump, so I need to know which way is up.
