Nothing wrong with that, and a lot of advantages- not in the way, no
trip hazard, etc. Yes, they probably did it that way out of laziness,
but how much does the cord weigh? If the outlet can't hold it, it needs
replacing anyway. I'm sure the electric aisle at the Borg has the little
clips that screw into the plate screw and have a fork to capture the
3-wire plug, if you are worried. (Or fake your own with a small eyebolt
run into the joist, and a ziptie around the cord 6 inches from the
plug,) I definitely would not bother changing to a different location
unless there was a real problem.
