I don't believe this.

I believe that the metal crossboom screws up the polarization whether or 
not the crossed yagis are mounted in the + or X configuration.  Rotation by 
45 degrees doesn't fix the boom problem.

I've never seen any measurements or theory that would indicate that X has 
less coupling than +.
