Good link KV!
Horse Sport ran an article a few months ago that showed that the single joint does protrude upwards, but the horse's tongue seems to depress downwards to alleviate any palate discomfort. It's trading one discomfort for another, though, and should be viewed as potential pain still; just different.
This is a recent study, so they might find out other things later on, too :)
