Plumbing rough in

Pretty sure I know the answer to this but figured I'd check anyway.

Typical rough in always has the drain in the center and the supply on either side. Is there anything that says I can put both supplies to one side?

I ask because if I can put both supplies on the one side of the drain it will free up space in my vanity design for wider and more useful drawers.

I'll be doing this myself shortly. I offset the drain a bit to the left to miss the vanity light electrical box, so will be putting both supplies on the right where a convenient stud is located.

Don't forget that hot still goes on the left of the cold, though.

I have one house where they are stacked. The way the access inside the wall worked out and the cabinet design allowed me a 2" area at the edge of the cabinet to get the supply's in. I put the bottom one out farther than the top one to allow for the supply tube hookups. The drain was the trickier part. I had to run the trap assembly to a stub-out behind the drawers. Fortunately there was ample room between the back of the drawers and the back of the cabinet.
