Which direction it flows once it's outside of the case isn't important.
Speak for yourself there chief. While it has no real effect on cooling performance some people find it important to have their exhaust blowing in a certain direction instead of just the general area around the case. As for moving air over a radiator they're actually not good for the push side, only the pull.

Where you are discussing the 200mm fan, I just wanted to point out that the effect that results in "fans that blow a lot of air at the edges of the blades but not near the center" is not relevant to an exhaust fan.
If the fan was in place to specifically direct air over a component in the case, or to cool a radiator or heat sink, it would be important what direction the air flowed, but as it is, the only purpose the exhaust serves is to remove air. Which direction it flows once it's outside of the case isn't important.
Thanks though for the link to the video, as I wasn't aware that silverstone had been working on that.
