Should a hard case depress a tuba's pistons?

I will soon be ordering a custom-made hard case for my Willson 3100 BBb tuba. The tops of its four pistons represent the uppermost dimension of the horn when it is laid flat (aside from the bell, of course). Should the padding inside the case top be designed to depress the pistons when the case is closed? Thanks in advance for responding.
