I've played plenty of courses with fairway sand-traps with 'tongues' which does not bother me: Kennedy Bay has 'pot' bunkers (perfectly round - with no 'tongues') and sometimes i need to play backwards to get out of one of these types of bunker...after all, it is a hazard for the purpose of penalizing an errant shot.
Bunkers are bunkers - avoid them with course management or (potentially) be penalized.

Sand traps are only for beautification purposes, according to Gary Player. Course designers shape them to make the hole look pretty.

they're meant to be hazards, you hit it in the bunker behind the tongue where you shouldn't, you pay the price...
