What if it extended 7-10 inches?

Would you accept it?

110.26(A)(3) Height of Working Space ..... Within the height requirements of this section, other equipment that is associated with the electrical installation and is located above or below the electrical equipment shall be permitted to extend not more than 150 mm (6 in.) beyond the front of the electrical equipment.
