Raspberry Pi A+ / B+ USB Connector Offset

I’ve been looking at stacking the control board for my LED Cube on top of a Raspberry Pi and liked the idea of the USB Adapter used in the Suptronics expansion boards to get USB signals from the RPi to the add-on board.

Obviously I would need a long and short adapter to support both the A+ and B+ but as I was measuring things up I noticed the USB connector on the Raspberry Pi A+ is offset from the B+.by about 2mm.

There’s no visible difference between in USB connector positions on the red (Egoman) B+ and a green Pi 2 B so I can only assume the position is the same on a green B+.
