Central Meridians and LCC

This is a question that bugs me and I cant seem to find any good answers.  Does it matter where the central meridian/longitude of origin is placed when using  Lambert Conformal Conic?  I have heard yes and no, but have not found WHY?  It seems like it is best practice to have the central meridian, well, central, but could you just have it at the western most extent of the AOI instead of having a false easting?

Thanks.
