There are plenty of portal dolmens where the capstone is level, or at least practically so.
Conversely, if there’s a recurring theme of capstones being positioned at an angle, with the pointy end facing down, it’s not unreasonable to assume that something’s going on (ie that a statement is being made) and to wonder what that statement might be.
There seems to be conflicting views as to whether or not PD's were completely covered on completion. If they were covered then the angle of the capstone would seem to be irrelevent. More likely they were partially covered so that it remained more of a feature possibly?
