'Mock time trial' position- any aero advantage?

I see riders at the head of the peloton and on breakaways with forearms resting close together on the tops on imaginary tri-bars.

Putting aside any safety issues, has anyone seen any data to show if there is any aero advantage on a normal road bike of this compared to forearms on the hoods?
