I never let my dog's stand over me (with one exception) but I am not afraid to let him jump on me (if I tell him to, not without command). My GSD and I go for a lot of walks in hay fields around us, and he jumps up on the hay bales, making him taller than me.
I think it is all timing. If you let them up higher than you when they are challenging you, that could cause problems. If your dog is a sweet, well trained dog who doesn't challenge you, I don't see a problem, as long as he's not standing over you
