Of course this is all dependant on you putting in the correct data in the first place but is a good feature. I was staggered to find out that the only reason the WFTF have banned it from their competitions is purely because of the electronic 'spirit level'.
It seems a little pedantic considering this is another useful feature and yet because it isn't a 'spirit level' i.e. uses spirit in a level that's grounds for banning it.
If I were Rowan I'd just call it a 'cant indicator' (careful there ) and be done with it.
Where did that come from? A rep, or someone else?

The reason is as what I gave, it is not on the list of accessories allowed on the rifle and that comes from the WFTF President.

There is no specification that a spirit level cannot be electronic.

We have reps for a reason.
