Question roundover/diffraction question

I have a pair of nice nearfield monitors that are going to flank my monitor. I'd like to put a roundover on the edges for aesthetical appeal and any diffraction control it my provide. My question is: since the baffle of the speakers and the face of the monitor are perfectly flush with no space between them (see attached picture), does it make sense to roundover the side of the speaker that borders the monitor? I assume that right now, the monitor acts as a virtual baffle extension of sorts, although that virtual baffle extends all the way to the other speaker. In this situation, which sides would you round over and why? Any help is appreciated.

I think a roundover where they meet would be counterproductive. I'd give the other edge a roundover though.

Thanks Bill, I think I will round the far side and the top, leave the near side and bottom as is. Andrew - I think you're right, but what happens when it wears off, as it eventually must, since beer+powertools=danger

Really? I guess that bodes poorly for my invention called a "shop top." It's a simple device to cover the open beer bottle top to keep the sawdust out.
