I think you are talking viewing area vs. aquascaping depth and area. They both have advantages. I can tell you that a 48" light fixture on a 60" tank is not a problem. Mine is elevated about 5" above the water and the spill over covers the tank ends just fine.
best of luck,

Still really like the 60x48 120. Anyone else have any thoughts on this? The 120 that 48 going to stick out from the wall a fair amount.

Well as much as I did not want to go with just a 90, and lot going back and forth with the wife, I ordered the 90. Not what I wanted, but it better than nothing, it was either 90 or nothing.
