Why would you want to exaggerate the pressing plane and place more stress on your shoulders by not arching at least a little? You can still have a slight arch, use proper back setup and focus on the chest if that's your goal. This will spare your shoulders some aggravation.

You don't have to make the bench press a fullbody lift but you should still practice form that will not kill the shoulders. These are 2 different concepts.
