The reason people say to shoot low is because many folks do not keep their form when shooting from an elevated position. Instead of bending at the waist and keeping everything inline they tend to just drop their bow arm which will change the alignment of your sight radius and cause your shot to go high. To compensate for their bad form they aim low. If you keep everything inline you should hold right where you want the arrow to go.

On the other hand it doesn't hurt to aim low in the vital area because the lower the vital hit the better the blood trail.

Actually, the problem with not bending at the waist has nothing to do with "sight radius" and shooting high. By not bending at the waist, you shorten your draw length by approximately 1.5", which would actually cause you to shoot low.
