Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. I wouldn't worry about it. Poor design in this particular regard, but that's neither here nor there.
If it really really worries you, you could certainly take the pliers to those braces and bend them out of the way a little further. Might mess with the angle of the rack, but if piece of mind is at stake.... Keep in mind that the braces are not load-bearing; they simply prevent the rack from rotating backward or forward.
