I see two possibilities:
1. No real world ramifications at all
2. Dynon was woefully inadequate in providing proper specs for the required wiring.
If you look at wiring where twisting is critical (ex: CAT5, CAT6 etc computer cable), the number of twists per foot, the direction of twist for each pair, etc, are all spec'd.
In my limited experience, most 'twisted pair' is more for convenience and wire ID than function. Exception might be something like a balanced line pair operating with relatively high source & load impedance.
edit: A closer look at the wiring diagram shows that they also spec'd wire color. My bet is that they're telling the installer what to look for in their harness.
