Default saddle height question

I hope I can describe this without pictures.

The question is regarding the saddle height and the resulting angle in which the string exits the pin hole.

So, the higher the saddle, the more obtuse the angle is at which the string exists the pin hole. Conversely, the lower the saddle, the more acute the angle is at which the string exits the pin hole.

And my question is, if the saddle is too low, and the angle at which the string exits the pin hole is too acute, do you need to worry about the long term effect of the string cutting into the bridge too much as it exits the pin hole? Especially the high E string (thinnest, thus exerting the most cutting pressure against the bridge material)
