Not much to talk about. Just like in freeflying everybody needs to stay on level whether the brake off is solo or in groups until deployment or near deployment. Once you are well clear yeah you can feather the fall rate out and get extra separation but it should look very flat. Corking is just bad regardless of discipline.
