I don't think it matters. The lines hold pressure, and the pressure should equalize all the way up the lines to the tap. I have carbed kegs on tap before w/o issue.
Fermenting, aging, kegged, bottled, drinking, etc... Who's got time to keep their sig updated?
The answer to all is: something (hopefully good).
