I believe that InitializeArray is not affected because it does endian
conversion when required. If a fixed RVA field were converted at it's original
location (by the runtime) it could still be marked as such and InitializeArray
wouldn't do it again.

I however believe that the behaviour exposed by HiddenFixedField.exe is that is
unlikely to be endian safe at runtime level because the runtime has no
information about the size and format of the owerflowing data. For this reason
and because it has been and is still endian unsafe, avoiding endianess
conversion may be preferable in the future as well.
