Obviously many folks commenting here make more boxes than I do and much more involved boxes too.. I’m a person who over kills most of my construction so it may not be necessary for you to do the same as I do.
End grain is end grain no matter what angle it is cut at. I do agree with that sizing of the end grain will add to is strength .I think the best way for you to resolve this for yourself is by gluing up a test miter for yourself and do your own strength test,to see what you think.
