I recently altered the profile on one of my vises a steeper filing angle. I can now file with file 30 degrees to saw vise and saw AND with teeth closer to the edge for easier filing. I think this is the 'slope angle'.Please confirm / deny.

I'd suggest describing the shape of cutter teeth with just two angles. Your slope angle can be varied depending on the orientation of the file. With a vice with a thicker face the file can be rotated on its axis and changed so it is not perpendicular to the saw to get any angle.
