after all the tournaments were done I tried some rear boot cant, my rs1's can pivot quite a bit, rear foot is almost all the way (not sure of degree or angle), couldnt notice a huge difference skiing, maybe a hair better on-side? didnt seem to compromise off-side either.

    as a LFF skier I turn my rear foot clockrise, that is also like moving it back slightly. l turn my front foot counter clock wise, also like moving the front foot back. I believe that for my body this puts me in a more athletic position. It also allows me to get my right hip more over my front foot and in an open position on off side lean. Canting is actually lifting on the side of the boot higher/lower. I believe you are talking about twisting/rotating.

    Oh yeah! I always get that mixed up, yes just pivoting or rotating rear boot is all I'm doing, and I'm RFF but have never tried pivoting the front foot.

    Keep in mind that rotating your boots can open up the knees. It can result in going bowlegged under load. Not saying it will, but something to keep in mind.
